Ok, I'll buy that, that's reasonable. I wasn't in the exchange with thoth.
I guess when I read about a community project to write the ultimate hacking
book, I assumed people from all backgrounds of security would be interested
in contributing... maybe that's a bit of a Utopian view, but I could imagine
a one stop Frankenstein of a book (probably one so large you couldn't even
carry a hard-copy) that has some really great great stuff if the right
Right now, I've got disjointed information everywhere that I reference for
various things all over my damn computer and bookshelfs... Uninformed
papers, presentations from various sources, manuals, books, blah blah blah.
If it was done right, I think the book could be pretty damn cool. Of
course, that depends on the community support and the content that comes out
of that. I'm not sure what PDP has envisioned for the book, I've been just
too busy today to give the article a good read, but I've always been very
interested in these community projects.
I think that's why I love ToorCon and really was bummed that I didn't get to
make it out to 24c3 this year... lots of collaboration going on there.
