LifeHacker reveals How to Silence Vuvuzela Horns in World Cup Broadcasts

For the Vuvuzela-killer, we need only a high-slope band stop filter that takes out the corresponding frequencies. For this, in principle, any modern computer that has a sound card with low latency and corresponding software should work. In our case, we used a Mac Mini and Logic Express 8. (Actually, such a complex software such as Logic Express is not necessary. We use it only because it was already on it on the computer and the necessary filters are included.)

I dunno, I kinda like the incessant sound of swarming insects...

Hacker Angels! Led by Gabriel Weinberg

hacker angels is a new group of hackers who are also angel investors. The group currently consists of myself, Joshua Schachter, Jeff MillerRoy Rodenstein and Jim Young

You can follow us all on twitter via the new hacker-angels list. You can also email us at

We are all generally looking to invest in other hacker entrepreneurs like ourselves. We are also looking for other hacker angels to join us.

I believe that there are many good hacker entrepreneurs who are not getting the funding or advice they need to get traction for their startups. I also believe hackers relate well with other hackers, which is why I think the concept of hacker angels is so compelling.

We're currently just an informal group that I'm sure will evolve as we get interaction and new members. I look forward to hearing from you!

I love it! May there be many more added to this list in the years to come.

Lucky to have fans like this (homemade alien & breadpig!)

It's really humbling to see any fan art, especially the kind that's made with things other than pixels - not only because of the extra work it requires, but because I spend too much time stuck in a digital world. These adorable creations are the work of a breadpig legionnaire named Flordelyn. I shall now shower her in praise for her great work. *Praise shower!*

Really, all of you supporters rock. Thank you.
