    That was very thought provoking. I had never thought about organized crime in relation to cyber-crime but his facts certainly put the pieces together. His speech was very informative thanks for sharing.

    Why did I forget that Ted existed? It's such a great source of information. I downloaded the talk to my ipod for tomorrow's commute. I look forward to it. Thanks!
