Students and prefrosh alike were able to play a fully functional game of Tetris on the Green Building over Campus Preview Weekend. Hackers used the already installed LED arrays to light up the windows with a variety of colors for the super-sized video game.

Anyone know of a way to be notified of hack sightings in real time?

While I'm not aware of a terribly good solution for real-time notifications (other than "ALWAYS LOOK UP!"), hacks.mit.edu does provide an RSS feed:

Unfortunately there is frequently a substantial lag between a hack's deployment and its appearance on hacks.mit.edu, but it's better than nothing.

The Tech also has a Twitter feed that is updated with photos and breaking news (including hacks). You can follow it at http://twitter.com/thetech.

Our blogs, which you can find at techblogs.mit.edu, are also updated more often than the main Tech website.
