    Chapter 1
    Kevin's Story
    by Kevin Mitnick


    I was reluctant to write this section because I was sure it would sound self-serving. Well, okay,
    it is self-serving. But I've been contacted by literally hundreds of people who want to know
    "who is Kevin Mitnick. "
    For those who don't give a damn, please turn to Chapter 2. For everybody else, here, for what it's
    worth, is nzy story.
    Kevin Speaks
    Some hackers destroy people's files or entire bard drives; they're called crackers or vandals.
    Some novice hackers don't bother learning the technology, but simply download hacker tools to
    break into computer systems; they're called script kiddies. More experienced hackers with pro-
    gramming skills develop hacker programs and post them to the Web and to bulletin board systems.
    And then there are individuals who have no interest in the technology, but use the computer merely
    as a tool to aid them in stealing money, goods, or services.
    Despite the media-created myth of Kevin Mitnick, I'm not a malicious hacker. What I did wasn't
    even against the law when I began, but became a crime after new legislation was passed. I continued
    anyway, and was caught. My treatment by the federal government was based not on the crimes, but
    on making an example of me. I did not deserve to be treated like a terrorist or violent criminal:
    Having my residence searched with a blank search warrant; being thrown into solitary for
    months; denied the fundamental Constitutional rights guaranteed to anyone accused of a
    crime; being denied not only bail but a bail hearing; and being forced to spend years fighting to
    obtain the government's evidence so my courtappointed attorney could prepare my defense.

            kevin was going to sign the deal last thurs. but couldn't because the guy wiyh the contracts only had a mechanical pen. (the "click in - click out" kind). i think the judge said he couldn't use those because he might be able to use the internal spring to jimmy open the lock on an ATM machine.....

              Actually Kevin didn't want me to tell you this but the internal spring is a perfect 2800GHz yagi, the ink can be used as a conductor to draw out a circuit board, and the mechanical pen barrel works as a mini pringles can.

              VERY serious stuff, those mechanical pens.
