Subject: Re: FBI security experts turning to Macs (not a Mac article)

While you mention the Mac connection in the article, Macs aren't the main
topic, which is more so who's actually doing the cracking and how.
I think this is pretty interesting in and of itself.

The idea of inviting an FBI agent to talk is pretty tempting. Anyone else be
interested in this? Maybe we could get a FBI security "expert"
to give a talk to the whole foundation.
