I wonder what Roel Verdult, lead author of the banned academic paper, "Dismantling Megamos Crypto: Wirelessly Lockpicking a Vehicle Immobilizer," will say? Will the Feds be visiting Usenix Security again?
One of the most popular authors wrote what is truly a young person's book: Have Spacesuit, Will Travel". I librarian pointed me in the direction of the SF shelf when I was 8, and I either found this book or had it pointed out to me.
It's later than you think, the joint Russian-American space mission has already begun.
