I did this when I had a TIA(mini stroke),  My husband could not
understand what I was saying....thought of my I-pad...communicated fine and it was a blessing to have. 
 
Go the old "its wrong because of the wording/ terminology"
 
Hack, as in hacking code together. Not as in breaking into things
 
The term "hack" needs to be taken back to its "pass the soldering iron" meaning before we all forget how to innovate.
