As an American, I would love it if we had a gun policy like Japan or UK etc, (ever hear of a drive by stabbing?) but the U.S. has been so gun crazy for so long and there are so many guns out there, getting rid of all them would likely be impossible. Not to mention the gun nuts that would rather go down shooting than hand over their guns. I just can not buy into, "more guns will make us safer"...

I have always enjoyed Bill Nye. Watching him in his early days on his show and on a local Seattle show "Almost Live". He was witty and funny.

From Wiki: "He studied mechanical engineering at Cornell University (where one of his professors was Carl Sagan) and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 1977. Nye occasionally returns to Cornell as a professor to guest lecture introductory level astronomy and human ecology classes."

I would think that is sufficient education to be "the Science Guy". Why do we need to tear him down?

That is the most ignorant post I have seen in a long time, I can not believe it got modded up. Comparing thieves to working people...

In most cases a hacker is nothing more than a thief and criminal, the article is correct, they should not be glorified.

That being said, someone like "Timothy McGee" (NCIS), that occasionally needs to hack something to save a life, etc... is the kind of "hacker" that is OK to glorify.
