The hackers who ate New York City

Wired: "This weekend, a few thousand systems-obsessed individuals will be able to fuel their paranoia in workshops that promise to reveal in hellish detail the wicked machinations of governments and big corporations.

They will also scoff at the misguided attempts of the "amateur" security workers who are charged with keeping them out of computer systems. They will openly share information on how to subvert those computer systems. They will privately worry whether their obsessive need to dissect data could lead to jail time.

And they may create a few balloon animals, engage in a wet underwear contest and reprogram their brains via downloads of tasty adult beverages."
