CryptoKids!

"Hey, little Timmy! What do you want to be when you grow up?"

"I wanna be a spook for the NSA!"


I have rather mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, it's great that they're encouraging kids toward intellectual pursuits. On the other hand, this creeps me right the fuck out. It's like "Hey kids! Solve these puzzles in less than 20 minutes and you could get a visit from a Psi Corps recruiter!"

Get 'em young, I guess.

I'm tempted to point out a typo in their 'Signals Intelligence' section (the word nest becomes next), but I don't particularly want to help them...

Well, shoot, I guess they'll probably just read this. Oh well.

The CIA has a similar site, and while I haven't checked I'm sure the FBI does too. I have similar mixed feelings.
