The Jane-athon prototype in Hawaii took place in December 2014.
The first Jane-athon took place on 30 January 2015 at ALA MidWinter in Chicago, USA.
The aim was to build upon a Jane Austen base r-ball.
Outcomes were presented in the Jane-athon report to the RDA Forum, February 1, 2015 by Thurstan Young and Kathy Glennan:
The combined unedited data from the first Jane-athon is available in the Jane-athon 1 (raw) r-ball.
The combined curated data from the first Jane-athon, removing duplicates, errors, and data with unresolved issues, is available in the Jane-athon 1 (curated) r-ball.

Philip K. Dick
The first Jane-athon also used a draft r-ball for the motion picture Blade Runner, based on a novel by Philip K. Dick.
The Jane number of Dick is 2, using the new RDA subject relationship: Jane (Person) is subject of Austenland is Secretly a Tribute to Philip K. Dick (Work) has subject Philip K. Dick (Person).
