geeksta rap

Courtesy of my colleague (in da dept.), Adam White, comes this story from Wired. Check out the latest craze going down Stateside... "Tupac and Biggie, move over. A new hip-hop feud is brewing that glamorizes not guns and 'hos but Java and secure encryption algorithms." And dig these lyrics:

"I'm encrypting shit like every single day / sending it across a network in a safe way / protecting messages to make my pay / if you hack me you're guilty under DMCA." (MC Plus +)

and from his arch nemesis, Monzy:

"Your mom circulates like a public key / Servicing more requests than HTTP / She keeps all her ports open like Windows ME / Oh, there's so much drama in the PhD."

Warning: do not click the links if you are easily offended (by computer scientists).
