It all doesn’t matter in the end. No matter if the people sentence GeoHot to death (wouldn’t recommend it, perhaps Anonymous will get angry) or less worse, the code is out there. Everybody’s got it and everything can be runned on it.

Most companies who wrote out hack competitions have both earned the respect of the public and the people with the real skills, because of their honesty.
