LulzSec Calls It Quits, Posts Official Letter Of ‘Resignation’

Well shoot, that was fast! The hacking group, Lulzsec has apparently decided to call it quits, assuming the pastebin document below is indeed from the group and is not, itself, a hoax.

So that leaves me guessing three things. A) LulzSec finally decided to quit, B) they were threatened to be exposed by other hacking groups, or C) it is a hoax! Before the official let go, the hackers posted the rest of the information they stole through previous hacks online.

The Hackathon Marathons

A series of events is taking over how startups are conceived, formed and funded. Social meetups are converting ideas into money making companies with votes. Hackathons as they are known, are productive and collaborative events that are becoming the source for many cool innovations we’re currently seeing.

Essentially these events are intense meetups that are anywhere between 1-4 days long and become a medium for exchanging knowledge. They create opportunities for some to learn about what’s hot in the tech space, while at the same time allow developers to perform under extreme pressures.

The events are sponsored by media firms, well known universities, creative agencies and funded by investment firms. The ideas are pitched to a group whereby people vote on the best ones, form a team and quickly make a prototype. It’s intense, it’s fun, and it works!!
