1 wrote a very carefully crafted and complicated piece of software and released it in late 80s, which made him hugely infamous. His release was one of the first instances of this kind of software. Although he got into decent trouble for this release, he came out of it and he now teaches in a very distinguished univ. He is more or less worshiped in geek circles for his skills. Enough of background info, now for the question
