(National Journal)   It's the darndest thing, but somehow, after a decade of treating the most innocent hackers as dangerous felons, the US finds itself with a terrible shortage of cybersecurity experts to help it fight off new IT attacks by foreign cyber-criminals   (nationaljournal.com) divider line 103

Magorn: The fed gov has one of the most robust telecommuting policies in the world.  Allowing workers to work from home where practicable is now mandatory and agencies are measured on thier progress towards to goal of having at least 1/3 of thier work force work remotely, hell GSA is now building new offices on the "hotelling model" with no asigned desks and significantly fewer desks than permanent employees to force the issue.

Very good. I believe this fulfills your monthly brown nosing quota. Please fill out FORM-BN-99 (sections 3.1B and 4.5A only. The rest are deprecated after Order 72-B came into effect). Upon completion, submit to your supervisor and you can expect immediate praise and have comfort knowing that you are 2.5% closer to your next promotion!

Magorn: You mean after he broke his probation he got automatically sent to jail for the remainder of his original sentence without further trial?

Mitnick was not immediately sent to jail after his original sentence for the conviction he earned in 1988. During his supervised release he continued to hack; had a warrant issued for his arrest then became a fugitive for 2 and a half years.

he figured he was so bright that the rules simply didn;t apply to him, and so he was reduced to whining about how horribly UNFAIR it was when the government insisted that they actually did.

He was held for almost four years before going to trial. Sixth amendment right?

Mitnick enriched himself off his hacking, that makes him a thief not a hacker in my book

Part of his defense was that he never profited from any of his endeavors, he was only in it for his own recreation.

Turned his life around after being released. Testified before Congress. Provides consultation on security to people. I'd say he's more of a regular guy than a thief.
