“The Internet’s best terrible person.” A “disappointment.” “Reviled/Beloved.” Those are just a few of the things people have called convicted AT&T/iPad “hacker” Andrew Auernheimer — a.k.a. “Weev” — currently sitting in federal prison serving a 41-month sentence.
Whether you love him or hate him, whether you disagree with him or disagree with AT&T, even if you’re indifferent — you should hope Weev wins his appeal filed last night before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
The future of the Internet may well depend on it.
