Bruce Sterling's Hacker crackdown came up over coffee. While looking for it, I stumbled across Sterling's blog, which led me to LA GRANDE DANSE MACABRE DES HOMMES ET DES FEMMES.

Some Sh!£head hacked my Wiki. I never had anything interesting there. Just the odd note I took, bookmarks and such. The reason I never bothered to put any protection on it was:
a. As I said, it not that thrilling. Didn't expect too much trafic.
b. What's the challange in hacking a Wiki? And a personal one with no exposure?

Well, aparently, when you're not smart enough to do any serious hacking, you settle for whatever you can get.
A theme of the nineteenth-century rhetoric of technology was that

technology would annihilate time and space. It did. And so today, "we are
