    What’s your background in hacking that you were chosen to speak about the topic?

      She is a reporter, she covered the case since beginning with objectivity. That is what (good) journalists do. If a quantum physicist were to make an incredible discovery, should the reporter double-check every calculation ? No. Of course, a bit of knowledge and doublecheck is necessary, but I am fairly convinced that Xeni knows quite a lot of people well versed in the arts of exploitation and that she checked her facts and hypothesis with them.

      As to the analysis of consequences of cybercrime, no hacking skill is needed for that, it falls in the domain of social sciences.

      You say that like you need a background in hacking to talk meaningfully about it.

    Reminds me of a recent Pete Holmes bit about criticizing movies, etc. “Hey!! Hey!! You try make a movie.” “Hey!! Hey!! You make a cake!! What do you know about cakes!?!?”

    She runs a blog that covers all things internet/nerdy. She has an interest in it. She’s allowed to talk about it. I’m sorry they didn’t call you.

    Brilliant. Just the question that needs to be asked in this era of namby-pamby journalism. The masses can’t be bothered to check the credentials so we must work behind the scenes to quiet the whimpering simpletons.

    What a bunch of dopes. Wrecking stuff to get their names in the paper, and more often than not, going after the softest of targets. Then logging their IRC conversations and having their server get blown along with one of their number. Using botnets. Whats this brute force rubbish?

    Kids these days.

    So, uh, what’s the juicy shit in the AT&T document? Please say that the new data network WON’T SUCK BALLS. Please? Especially in NYC?
