Interesting article in the wake of a recent SFOBUG meeting..
] Talking to Fyodor in another context, with Althusser
] still on my mind, I asked him, "Do you want to tell me
] your real name?"
] Fyodor is the hacker handle he picked out for himself as
] a teenager. It isn't as if the name his parents gave him
] is a huge secret, although I don't know it. I was simply
] curious about whether he wanted to tell me, which isn't
] the same thing as finding it out.
] "No," he said with a smile.
I've been thinking about the use of nyms lately, so this is interesting..
The rest of this article focuses on the dual-use qualities of nmap, and trying to put them (and Fydor) in the light of French Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser. I'm not sure what to make of that..
