    I dont know that I've ever seen a news story where something was misquoted, taken out of perspective, or information non relavent to the story was included.

    Although I agree, much better than some other stories on war driving I've seen.

    I think people would rather be penetrated by Choda Boy's helmet probiscus than rendermans.

    Great satan shirt on Panthera as well.

    Spending 3 hours talking to him one day and 2 hours driving around gives you plenty of time to beat in facts.

    I think you'd look cute in a cape ..

    heheh.. yeah, in the scope of wardriving articles that one does ok. It just struck me as funny that some of his article completely outed that he had absolutely no clue what he was writing about... and that he is going to pioneer the future of security in his next article .. after writing about a subject that was news almost half a decade ago.

    I agree that it's not a bad article at all. Reporters are always trying to make their stories more sensational...that's how they keep jobs. :) It was a good read, your points are salient and it keeps your attention.

    Oh, and my memory for stuff like the WD contest is like RAM...once I go to sleep...it all goes away. Besides, it was c0n that mentioned that ;)

    There were so many things that bugged me in that article. Do I look like a superhero? Believe me, I don't look very good in tights or a cape. Besides, I'm more of a mad scientist then a hero.

    Lowest common denominator I guess. The 'Sun' newspaper here is one notch above a tabloid and they admit it.

    CP99: A better read is the spyware portion from 2 days earlier: http://www.edmontonsun.com/News/Spec...58376-sun.html , yes I am heavily quoted. I'm vain like that. You try explaining unicode to a reporter, it's not easy

    "We've taught our kids that computers are a tool that can be used, but we haven't necessarily taught them what they should and shouldn't be used for, so it's often open to interpretation."
    Its hard to construct the technological moral fiber in children when many of the current generation parents have no understandings of the technological world and its set of moral codes. In short my point is; Its hard to teach what you don’t understand.


    And on another note, This was a very good read ;)

    It is people like Jeremy that give 'news' a good name and show hope and promise for the future of humanity.
