Not trying to get into politics but from the histoical "okay that is
It just hit the naws that one of the guys running for president who has
been a politician for a while (Beto O'Rourke) was actually a member of
cDc, Cult of the Dead Cow. This was a legendary "hacking" group that used
to release a lot of t-files. He ran a BBS apparently. cDc held back this
knowledge for a while so as to not interfere with his career but he went
public with it. A book about cDc is supposed to come out.
A whole lot of people that are not familiar with the old school hacking
social groups and BBSes and all of that could potentially start to hear
about it depending on how far the guy gets in politics. Could bring a lot
of attention to 80s/90s computing and the community around it all.
