The Great Hacking Debate


Sure, Anonymous is making a fuss, getting noticed and provoking discussion. But it has all the subtlety of a five-year old lying face down in the middle of the grocery store, kicking and screaming because they couldn't bring their favorite toy with them. There are far more important issues in the world than jailbreaking the PS3 -- issues people are dying for, in some cases -- and yet this is where it chooses to focus its attention? I might have more sympathy if the group discussed matters in a reasonable manner rather than throwing things around as soon as something it doesn't like happens.

As it is, though, I find myself wanting to side with Sony in all this.
