How ironic. They chased him for years because of a lot of stuff attributed to him that he never actually did and as the article pointed out they were pissing their pants scared of him and his supposed ability to whistle nuclear launch codes into a payphone and launch the nukes at NORAD. Just hilarious to me that they are not only listening to his security advice and good advice it is but have hired him and are paying him for it!

that's the US government for ya bro...
They payed me $30k a year when I was in the military to work my ass off 12hours a day, 7 days a week...
Now I have THE EXACT SAME job as a civilian contractor for over 250k a year, and all I do is show up and play video-games for 8 hours a day =)

The chants over the years...

(1) Early 2000's - "Hack the planet! Hack the planet!"
(2) Mid 2000's - "Free Kevin! Free Kevin"
(3) 2012 - "Hire Kevin! Hire Kevin!"

The kids are growing up so fast!

How the worm turns. Similar to how we sold Sadam the weapons then we bombed him now we are wiping our hands of that mess.

It'd be nice to drop the stigma of "Convicted hacker".... etc etc. To some people, it rings of an accomplishment, but seriously, x-hacker or any other term sounds better than something that resembles "sex offender" does, for life.
