Hackers aren’t exactly known for there physical ability or fortitude. But in recent years a number of hacker types have started doing some pretty impressive, dare I say athletic achievements. Bruce Potter and the Cycle Override teams are about to kick off a a mega ride across the country. While I used to ride my bicycle a lot I can’t say I’m up for a ride of that length. Instead I did the Goruck Challenge, right here in Burlington Vt with a bunch of folks. 4 of them were from the local Crossfit box.
It was epic to say the least.
There is often a perception that hackers fit into a certain stereotype…it’s changing, just you watch.
