Very much so I think.

I'm curious as to what the next wave will be. Cornflicker it seems to me will set the bar for other worms out there.

Whilst I don't agree with what they use these things for you have to admire the work.
 
If only they used their obvious genuis for good things.

Indeed, all that coding skill for what?
Their "15 minutes of fame", or getting back at society (which is where it ultimately ends up damaging).
I'm surprised at how many people don't use either firewalls nor proper antivirus (and they use a really targetted OS).

As far as the p2p-topic goes, the masses are really raging over here in Sweden over integrity and privacy issues due
to recent laws being implemented by the current government.

There's really nothing "new under the sun", but things are growing to
extreme proportions.
intuition inside!

Well, it's a good thing the Internet isn't made up of pneumatic tubes. Who knows what we'd get in our mailboxes then. Very interesting article even though it ends on a sour note.
