well the hotmail hack is certainly getting a lot of attention in the mass
media. james glave <> is doing a lot of the ground work,
churning out a number of good articles. unsuprisingly enough he's also a
member of this list. in these articles, james sources
the supposed hackers responsible as being interviewed in irc. can you
offer more info on this james?

it seems this particular 'hack' has created an environment in which
microsoft and the many issues around it (anti-trust trial, monopoly,
their horrible computer security and tendency to conduct covert
surveillance on their users) are again making it into the public mind.

anyhow, i'm going to be appearing on Canadian National Television tonight
on CBC's National Magazine, speaking about the Hotmail hack, the microsoft
monopoly, and technology and society. It should be a 20 minute segment, on
CBC. it airs at 9pm on Newsworld, 10pm on CBC...
