Computer Engineer Who Held San Francisco's City Computer Network Hostage to Face Trial



+ Add a Comment


This guy was the senior network admin for the city of SF. He wasn't dealing with end users.

Anyone who's dealt with SF city employees, however, wouldn't have any trouble believing that both his managers and the people he worked with were totally incompetant. Still his fault for completely losing his cool and breaking the law, but I can easily understand what motivated him to do so.



It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.  And to see if there is really any ground for his counter argument that his coworkers were really the badguys.

But, being that most people that IT guys have to deal with are "duh whats a mouse?", it wouldnt be surprising to see that this really was just a case of him being pissed off at who he had to deal with on a regular basis.
