The Wall Street Journal has recently posted an article in regards to John Draper.
After all the things he has done, it really is a shame to see what has befallen such a brilliant person.
One would have thought that he would have become wealthy as other technological revolutionaries like Steve Wozniak have. Fate apparently had different plans though; He was blacklisted from companies because of his criminal record stemming from his phreaking days and is now forced to scrounge around for money and work.
In short: He has been left in the breakdown lane of the Information Super Highway..
