Last But Not Least… LulzSec Closes Shop

Posted by ayofemikirby on June 26, 2011

So I have one final post to make, and even if it doesnt count, I think it’s worth sharing. News on Mashable today reports that LulzSec, the infamous hacking team has decided to shut its doors. The covert team that has wreaked havoc on the CIA, Sony, Disney, AOL, AT+T and the FBI by hacking its websites has decided that its campaign to  “selflessly entertain others – vanity, fame, recognition, all of these things are shadowed by our desire for that which we all love” is over.

I think this news is a nice way to end this class. For the past few months, these semi-anarchists have been poking their tongues at the government and corporations, showing us how with the more dependent we become on technology, the power held within institutions is, with the click of a button, easily destructible.

Here’s the story.

Great class folks.

Happy Tweeting.
