Lispian Random meanderings on whatever catches my fancy

Lispian
The Morris Worm

Recently it was the 20th Anniversary of the Morris Worm. A number of articles have appeared discussing the worm.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years. But the articles tweaked my memory and I remember quite vividly aspects in and around the release of the worm. And I remember quite well talking to Bob Morris Sr. after his son was arrested on charges pertaining to the worm. When I asked what advice you gave him he said, in his usual dry style:

Buy a suit and hire a good lawyer.

Many of us figured Bob Jr. would be hung out to dry simply because of who his father was. That was partially true, but since then Morris Jr. has done quite well. Kudos to him.
