Rap Marketing Comes to Nerdcore

My friend jake sent me this. jake fancies himself as “j2bb” in his inner ibm web development rap circles.

It talks about how CS grad students around the nation (with whom i group myself) are creating verses about thier math and thier phat ‘Algorythms’.

“MC Plus+ rattles off lines like: “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.””

for once i am speachless. too close to home? you’re god damned right.

    Is that guy who calls himself the Tupac of computer science going to die via a drive buy keyboarding anytime soon? Or maybe someone will spam him to death.
