Fireworks Display On WikiScanner

Franco Folini has this excellent post which gives us a good idea of the marketing strategies of a few “respectable” companies. A 24 year old hacker called Virgil Griffith has created WikiScanner with a very interesting goad in mind. In his words, “to create a fireworks display of public relations disasters in which everyone brings their own fireworks, and enjoys.”

Not surprisingly, this guy has been sued before and obviously Wikipedia itself has an article about him.
