DARPA's Shredder Challenge

DARPA Shredder Challenge

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!
