Mitnick is back

After 8 years in withdrawl, Kevin Mitnick was finally allowed to browse the web again this Tuesday. What was his first stop on the infobahn? His girlfriend’s weblog, where she had been documenting their relationship for some time. How sweet! And it was on public television. Said Mitnick:

“The Internet is like the phone, to be without it is ridiculous. I could not use an electronic toilet without permission from the U.S. government.”

Electronic toilets? Where are these mysterious networked disposal devices? And why is the US government hiding them from us?
