Zombies! Turn Back Now!

What if you were driving to work and where you would normally expect to find traffic adversaries, you saw warnings of an impending zombie attack? Well, it happened in Austin this week. Hackers changed public safety messages on Monday to warn of “zombies ahead.” Some thought it was funny, others remind us that hacking construction signs is a criminal offense, no matter what the message.

What’s further interesting to me, is that the city of Austin seems to have a bit of an infatuation with the undead. The Alamo Drafthouse, a local chain of movie theatre restaurants, began an annual zombie film festival last year, and with it, initiated a Zombie March to the Capitol to demand equal rights for zombies. Granted, other cities have had these walks as well, but in Austin, it didn’t even seem that strange. And hey, thanks to the Zombie March, the people of  Austin know what to look for…

Get to work on that escape plan, Austinites. They’re coming.
