Time’s Top 100 Poll Hacked

Old news to some, but I just read about this and found it to be fascinating. For the technical explanation, please visit Paul Lemere’s blog. Essentially, a few hackers figured out how to manipulate the Time.com poll. If you look at the first letter of the top 21 people, you’ll notice that it spells “Marblecake also the game.”

It doesn’t have much significance to me, but according to the blog:

Marblecake was an irc channel where the “Message to Scientology” video originated. Many believe we are “dead” or only doing hugraids etc, so I thought it would also be a way of saying : we’re still around and we don’t just do only “moralfag” stuff .
