In 2005, hackers turned the Infinite Corridor into a level from the Nintendo game Mario. This weekend, to commemorate the hack, hackers put up structures — built from soda cans — of Mario and a piranha plant next to the police car in the Stata Center’s Hack Gallery. This CPW, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of MIT, hackers are installing 20–30 hacks all over campus, some of which will be performance hacks. The hacks are accompanied by a booklet, which can be found on stands by some of the hacks. Try to find them all!
