The happy homeless hacker

Here's a great Wired News story about Adrian Lamo, a homeless hacker who squats, couch-surfs, or rents a cardboard condo by night and finds headline-grabbing security vulnerabilities in major corporate networks by day from Internet cafes.
Living out of a backpack, getting online from university libraries and Kinko's laptop stations, the slightly built, boyish Lamo wanders the country's coasts by Amtrak and Greyhound bus.

"I have a laptop in Pittsburgh, a change of clothes in D.C. It kind of redefines the term multi-jurisdictional," Lamo said with a mild stutter. "It'll be hard to get warrants for it all."
