The Read_Me Festival 1.2 shortlist has been posted, and includes such projects as Carnivore(not the government one, though that was part of the concept), and the DeskSwap screensaver. While this is a "software art" exhibition, it's of particular note that patches or even just instructions for making existing software do things not originally intended are allowable entries. I haven't been through all of them to see if any patches were entered, but it'd be interesting what the publishers might think of these, since it would basically constitute hacking and/or reverse engineering.

Mmm, cool.

For those of you in Central Illinois (and for your sake, I hope you're not, heh) you can view Carnivore at the University Gallery in Normal for just a couple more days, until April 3rd.

TraceNoizer looks pretty interesting. Great for paranoiacs. But, alas, I can't get it to work.
