FBI Code Cracking Contest
I saw that the FBI is hosting what it looks to be its second annual "Can You Crack A Code?" contest. First off, I didn't know they had a contest last year, so this is news to me. I find it interesting, most from the perspective that I don't find those government agencies to be that open with the public. Ok, maybe that isn't being that open, but still, it is interaction on a more general level than "none at all". I am sure that one of the main reasons for this contest is to evaluate new talent that otherwise may have looked elsewhere for employment. I am sure that if you can crack this you are well on your way to being a crypto-genius :) Probably not, but I think I'll stick to Merseene Prime generation for now.
