I attended BarCampBoston2 today. It was held at the Stata Center at MIT in Cambridge. Sitting atop a ledge on the first floor of this building is this legendary icon of MIT "hacking" or pranks. This police car was found by the campus authorities atop the Great Dome of the university. It was complete with blue lights flashing, a dummy police officer and a dozen doughnuts in front seat. The perpetrators had, amazingly, disassembled the car, taken the pieces up through a hole and reassembled the car on top of the roof.
