After today’s class activity I, in a sense, feel more like a hacker (though a novice one). The Hackasaurus tool that we utilized was very intuitive and made altering the website, that my partner and I chose, very easy. It was as simple as clicking an image or text and replacing it with another. I have to say that changing an established website, to my liking, made me feel somewhat powerful. Is this what hackers feel like when they hit it big and successfully hack someone or something? If so, I can now say that that I better understand these individuals. The particular type of hacker that I think I can sympathize with a bit more, now that I’ve ‘hacked’ a website, are the trolling ones since my partner and I basically trolled an existing Buzzfeed article. Overall, I can say that I enjoyed this class activity because it allowed us to practice our rhetoric skills in another form than a traditional college essay. I hope to do more activities like this in the future.
