The TARDIS at MIT
Hack on the Little Dome, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
25 August 2010
A visit from The Doctor: "It's bigger on the inside."
For viewers not intimately familiar with MIT Culture, this is a "hack" (prank) for the start of the academic year at MIT. New student orientation begins this week. The MIT website has a gallery of hacks from over the years: hacks.mit.edu/ "The word hack at MIT usually refers to a clever, benign, and "ethical" prank or practical joke, which is both challenging for the perpetrators and amusing to the MIT community (and sometimes even the rest of the world!)."
(Also, the building isn't dirty; the stone was sopping wet. It had been raining for three days, and it was still sprinkling when the photo was taken.)
