Follow up to the Oregonian article

Reading this article 
today made 
me realise how probable it is that corporations employ 
PR companies to create an image of something which goes 
far beyond the actual field the corporation might be 
working in. And to what lengths they would go to 
achieve this. On this list the image of "hacking" and 
"hacktivism" is obviously of greatest interest. Is 
somebody out there actively working on the image of 
hackers and hacktivism as terrorists/-ism? 

Paranoid thoughts. 

Whether this is so or not we may never find out, but 
one other thing became clear in the article. That 
activist "propaganda" is working. And that governments 
and corporations are scared of this. Resistance is not 
futile :-)
