UW CSE Ph.D. alum Brandon Lucia and bachelors alum David Balatero are 2/3’s of the band netcat. Brandon writes:
“We use lots of computers in our band so we released our album as a working Linux kernel module (as well as digital and cassette). Various social media + Internet personalities (Hacker News, Reddit, jwz.org, twitter, Greg Kroah-Hartman, Dan Kaminski, etc.) all nodded to it. In fact gregkh, the maintainer of Linux-stable, has contributed 2 patches! It’s still on pg 1 of Hacker News this evening and we’ve gotten thousands of new people listening as a result!”
