Virtual Mugging - The Aftermath
I previously wrote about Tech Journalist Mat Honan's virtual mugging, where his digital life was basically taken from him in matter of minutes. A huge deal to someone in that line of work, and pretty devastating had it happened to any of us mere mortals. Some good came out of Mr. Honan's misfortune, though; it raised awareness to be sure, and also showed his ability to write forcefully and in a detailed way about his experience that really hit home. The aftermath has him describe picking up the pieces, and just how difficult (and expensive) it can be - even for an individual as technically savvy as he is. The article below is once again a pretty long and detailed read, but it's gripping stuff when you know what's at stake for the writer.
