	Take a look at the following from the article:

(Begin quote)

"Rosenberger is not just a random ornery
writer with a website and a bone to pick. He's
an experienced programmer, a systems
administrator and a man of mystery with
high-level CIA security clearance. 

Information about Rosenberger's status with
the CIA was confirmed by an inquiry to a
government office, and Rosenberger
understandably refused to verify or even
discuss the issue."

(End quote)


	That bio has too many anomalies to be credible.

	And the fact that Rosenberger is utterly oblivious to the expense
in bandwidth that the CR worm is causing now, makes me doubt that
Rosenberger is a competent source for information.

	AUK bait.

um, and he's running for a seat on the FBI's National Infrastructure
Protection Center.
" Rosenberger decided the best way to
 change the NIPC is to become a
 member. He wants to set up an
industry advisory board to work with
 the NIPC and, of course, he wants a
 seat on that board."

He disagrees with the NIPC policy that encourages mass-media coverage of
security events.

"He wants to set up an
industry advisory board to work with
the NIPC and, of course, he wants a
seat on that board."

Apparently Microsoft doesn't have enough "say" at present. heh. 

I'm sure Microsoft wishes this crisis were handled more quietly, even
tho Microsoft's culpibility has been *way underplayed* already.

He's a microsoft mouthpiece, just as owned as any CodeRed infested W2k
server.

That such a bald puff piece is in Wired lets me know Wired is on the
take or being blackmailed too.

It isn't always conspiracy, Webfairy.  Sometimes people are just
stupid...

Especially, I sometimes think, journalists.

Having been the subject of, or direct witness to, a fairly large number
of media-covered events and issues over the course of time, I can tell
you that it's RARE that they get things entirely right.  I can't say
quite why.  But I've never heard anyone suggest that journalism degrees
require any extraordinary brilliance...

Sometimes journalists have their angle, or even the whole story,
pre-determined (usually by Go- I mean the editor) before they ever seek
out their first fact.  Practically always they will play up conflicts
and concerns to make things seem bigger or badder or more dramatic than
they really are.  It's got to "make good copy."

But all too often they just seem not to have understood what happened or
what was said, however brilliantly obvious or clear or simple it may
have been.  Plain ole thtoopidity.

There's an old saw, "Never ascribe to malice that which can be
reasonably attributed to mere stupidity."

pchelp,

My observation is that they collect 30 minutes or 500 words of material
and it has to be edited to fit in the space alloted to it.  So many times,
the message or important facts are lost in the cutting.

A good point.  It takes a high degree of wit (and no little time) to
condense a story without rendering it useless.

Somewhere I saw a quote I loved that went something like:

"I'd make this letter shorter but I haven't enough time."

Heard this several times attributed to J.W. Goethe with the wording:

"Because I hadn't the time to write you a short letter I wrote a long
one."

Ugh. So we all know that there's this syntax for formatting codes (n=E9s "interio= r sequences") like C<< x >>.
