Barrett Brown Is Prepared for Some Nasty Comments

For our April issue, I wrote a 7,000-word profile of a guy named Barrett Brown. Barrett can’t tie his own shoes (literally), but he’s an unofficial spokesman for a group of hackers called Anonymous that doesn’t really exist. It’s complicated. That’s why it took me 7,000 words to explain the whole thing. Well, that and Zac was my first editor on the story, and he’s lazy. He refused to cut anything.

In any case, I’m putting up this post because after he read the story last night, Barrett said, “I can’t wait to see how viciously I get attacked in the comments by Anonymous.”

Have at him, folks!
