Academic .NET Radio Is On The Air
Matthew Cassell, at 15 years old, is the youngest member of my user group here in Kitchener. He's also one of the most active. He's recently put together a podcast that will focus on .NET development as it relates to the academic space. High school in particular. Don't let the audience demographic fool you.

Rootkits and Sony and Bears Oh My!
Mark Russinovich of Sysinternals fame was testing the latest iteration of his RootKitRevealer when to his surprise he found one on his machine. The ensuing saga will leave you dumbfounded. The company that developed the Digital Rights Management “software” - which takes considerable liberty with the term to be sure - for Sony, First 4 Internet, responded to Mark's analysis with a reply that is nothing short of ludicrous.
