the current [june 2002] issue of wired has a page on mit hacks. apparently, a new book on the history of this subject is being put out by the mit museum. one i didn’t know about:

“1992: in an elaborate escapade called Cathedral of Our Lady of the All-Night Tool, Lobby 7 was converted into a pagan basilica, complete with pews, altar, confessional, and tablets of hexadecimally numbered commandments (“Thou shalt not divide by zero,” “Thou shalt not exceed the speed of light”). In MIT-speak, a tool is a study-aholic.”

fantastic. overheard on campus today:
girl a: have you seen john lately?
girl b: no, he’s been holed up in course 6-land. he slept two hours in the past two days. isn’t that crazy? i dunno how he does it.
girl a: [admiringly] holy shit. that’s hardcore.
