Digital Citadel

The solution to a crypto puzzle I helped solve during the MIT Mystery Hunt was "ALMOST PLAGIARIZE DAN BROWN WORK." Seth Schoen did this beautifully with an extremely humorous parody of Dan Brown’s Digital Fortress.

His story, Digital Citadel is extremely funny if you are marginally familiar with Dan Brown and his writing style — and probably even if you are not.

I have not seen a copy of the prize winning entry in the hunt — a story called The Ikea Code — but the excerpt I heard was also hilarious.
