The Freshman Fishwrap / IHTFP Hack

Ceci n'est pas un hack

Location: Building 10
Date: April 1, 2000
Perpetrators: Not Hackers

Late in the morning of April Fool's Day, 2000, this banner appeared on the side of Building Ten, declaring itself not a hack.

This non-hack appears to be inspired by Rene Magritte's The Treachery of Images (featured in Gödel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter), possibly as a response to the recent media frenzy surrounding MIT hacking, and the anticipation of an April Fool's Day hack.
