Submission + - Up to 10 Years for Ex-Goldman Programmer (nytimes.com)

The programmer, Sergey Aleynikov, was convicted in December of stealing proprietary code, which generated some $300 million dollars for Goldman in 2009 by executing ultra-fast trades using computer algorithms that catch tiny price discrepancies in stock prices.
