Wired: Mattel Sues Over Blocking Hack. Two awesome programmers cracked Mattel's CyberPatrol censorware product which was written by not-so-awesome programmers (hackers, if you will).

One of the uber-programmers, Matthew Skala is a subscriber to the VLUG mailing list which I also subscribe to. He lives in my home town of Victoria. We went to the same University. This is strange, I'm not used to this kind of thing happening in my back yard! There's been a lot of talk about this ridiculous situation on the VLUG list. Go Matthew Go!
