I just stole this post from the Huckleberries blog…

Two electronic signs intended to warn motorists of construction near the intersection of Lamar and Martin Luther King boulevards were changed yesterday by hackers. (AP Photo/Chris Nakashima-Brown)
Whatta Hoot: Crafty hackers in Austin, Texas, changed some construction signs that typically read things like “merge right” to “Zombies in area! Run for your lives!” Austin Public Works is pretty upset about the ordeal. They said it endangered the public and are planning to press charges if they can figure out who did it. But I say kudos to the hackers — despite how I might have crushed anything or anyone in my path while frantically escaping the zombies, in retrospect, I think it’s hilarious/Syndey, UI Argonaut. More Off The Cuff here.
Question: Do you consider this prank humorous? Or dangerous?
