Last week, an electronic road sign in Austin, Texas was hacked to warn drivers of zombies. The prank, which I'm going to chalk up to the ingenuity of college kids, was pretty awesome. It's also nice to see that state officials can take a joke. In an interview with Fox News, ChrisLippincott, director of media relations for the Texas Department of Transportation, said:

"It was clever, kind of cute, but not what it was intended for. Those signs are deployed for a reason -- to improve traffic conditions, let folks know there's a road closure. It's sort of amusing, but not at all helpful."


Personally, I blame the hacker-zombie connection on games like Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead.

If you could hack into a local road sign, what message would you leave?
