Stuff for the Teen Age

Hack the Library with Hackasaurus!


Are we teaching New York's teens tools for a life of crime?! Not exactly. Hackasaurus is a website that makes it easy for people to manipulate our favorite webpages while we learn about the ins and outs of HTML. A group of six teens met on a Tuesday afternoon to try out this new program and add their personal touch to the internet.

Using Hackasaurus couldn't be easier. You just download their xray goggles to your bookmark bar and activate them whenever you want to change up a webpage. Then you can save a copy of what you made and share it with your friends. A great example is a hack of Mulberry Street Library's webpage, the creator really likes apples!
