I just stumbled on this amazing documentary, which carves out the living atmosphere at Netscape during the 1998-1999 years, the period in which Netscape released the source code for their browser as Open Source and rebranded into what we know today as Mozilla.

The documentary is focused on the programmer efforts behind the move and the startup nausea, which gives it a really interesting taste and makes it a great watch.

LE: As a side note, this documentary has been open sourced too, sort of to speak. You can find more about it here. 🙂

Apparently the source code for the Kaspersky Antivirus 8.0 has been leaked on the intertubes… Too bad. :-/

It seems that the respected Windows security and technical guru Mark Russinovich is working on a sci-fi novel related to cybercrime and cyberterrorism called Zero Day, that is set to roll out in March. A pretty uncommon approach, for technically gifted gurus like Mark to turn to novel writing, though i must admit it adds to the weight of book, at least in my opinion.

In the end, this sounds really interesting and worth giving a heads up once this book becomes available.
