“Boris F. was a german hacker under the pseudonym TRON, doing a lot of advanced chipcard hacking and crypto gear development. TRON died in 1998, he probably committed suicide, but there is a slight chance he was murdered. […]—Now German courts act against de.wikipedia because TRON’s offline family-name was published in full there. Someone who knew TRON in person now has published an extensive article at /. which unveils a complex story. The whole controversy and everything in its wake is an interesting example of negotiation and reasoning within cyberculture.
