  • 2013 - Call for categories

    Want to hedge your bets when competing in Hacker Pyramid? How about contribute the categories that you might be describing to our hand picked daily fresh hacker celebs?

    That's right, you too can be enshrined in the Hacker Pyramid annals of time just by putting together at least seven words. Your name might even make it up on screen when your category is being used to humiliate and denigrate contestants.

    Just post your new category here, or even better, e-mail defcon at hackerpyramid dot com.

    Guidelines for Categories:

    - Categories must contain SEVEN items.
    - Category title may not be used as an item within it.
    - A description or clue is nice, but not required.
    - In-jokes are allowed, but may not entertain the audience.
    - Being security related will help your category with our judging staff.
    - Try to avoid items that are long strings. Some of our contestants have trouble reading small text on screen.

    That's it, it's that simple. Now get churning away on them.

    See you in vegas
