Please Help!! A story about the history of the Lego Website...

Post by apatheticultimatum on Tue 29 May 2012, 6:20 am

Hey everyone! I apologise, but I think I'm going mad...

I remember from my childhood, a book described to me a story about someone hacking an early version of the Lego website and rearranging some of the directions/pieces to build completely original things, and Lego was so impressed with the hacker's creativity that they offered him a job.

I believe the book itself was either "Crashing Computers" by Micheal Coleman, or (More likely) "The Incredible Internet" by Micheal Cox. Both are from The Knowledge series of books, which are spin-offs from Horrible Histories.

I've done Google search after Google search, and I can't find anything. Was this book fabricating the event the entire time, or did this actually happen?
Thank you for your time!

A quick search found this:

So unless that was written by you, at least ONE other person has heard that story too. :D
