This evening, students at Ecole Polytechnique organize “
Point Gamma 2017” – a gigantic party for students and others, with music, entertainment, – and, according to the flyer, something special this year….
I cannot help but wonder if this is related to a class I teach (and, taught, just this Friday) entitled “
Cybersecurity – the Hacker Experience“?
Either way, to the organizers, and the participants: have a great evening, have fun, stay safe….and don’t do anything that I wouldn’t have done when I was your age ?
