Rarely is something so squarely up my alley as DARPA’s Shredder Challenge. Simply download five shredded documents, reassemble the puzzles within, submit your answers, and claim a share of the $50,000 prize.
And sure, the Challenge’s sponsor – a research arm of the military-industrial complex – can use the resulting insights to pry into your sensitive affairs. But, ultimately, improved document destruction technologies will trickle down to the people, and privacy wins. So, register as a participant, grab the pieces, and totally unshred, dude!
