review:

It’s so terrible that it’s unintentionally hilarious!

I’m pretty sure Deaver’s “research” for this book consisted of watching Hackers, The Net, and Lawnmower Man, then asking is 16-year-old nephew for an explanation on the jargon they used in the films. That’s about as “deep” as this book gets into understanding its subject matter.

If you love a cheesy, woefully dated outsider’s look into The Cyber filled with every generic trope you could imagine, you’ll likely enjoy this disasterpiece. Just don’t forget to burn your modem and encrypt your Garbage files!

The End of the Internet Dream: the speech that won Black Hat (and Defcon)

The text of Granick’s speech is now online, and I can see what they were all raving about. Granick tells the true story of “Internet Utopians” — not people who believed the Internet would deliver a better, freer world; rather, people who believed that it could, if the rest of us fought for it.
