"The tao that can be tar(1)ed is not the entire Tao. The path that can be specified is not the Full Path.
We declare the names of all variables and functions. Yet the Tao has no type specifier.

When I was ~17-18, people would tell stories about other 17 year olds who would take down major corporations websites and deface them[1] about a similarly aged young man who could break the crypto that DVDs used[2]. About young men who could create viruses that wreacked havok worldwide.

And the story generally went: no matter how strong the security of a large corporation was, there was probably some bored teenager who could best it.

I'm glad to hear that here we are, a full generation later and the youth of our age is still carrying that flame.
