1. Ghost in the Wires
Kevin Mitnick died last Sunday, aged 59. I had never heard of him before. A tweet from his wife announcing his death popped up in my feed. I read his obituary. He sounded like a fascinating guy. He had been a hacker turned cyber security expert.
I searched for his book and downloaded it. I was captivated. It's a while since I've been so caught up in a book.
It's clearly a very sad time for his family especially his wife who is expecting their first child. Here in the UK I've pondered his life, laughed out loud as I read some of his daring exploits, and marvelled at the legacy that some people leave behind.
I wonder how long it will be before a film is made of his life.
