Laying Into the Lama

We all know that hackers are after government and corporate computers. But someone must have been mighty curious about the Dalai Lama. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking.

A group of hackers managed to purloin a whole year's set of e-mail. Perhaps the hackers were looking for a little something, you know, for the effort, you know. Perhaps on their deathbed, they'd like to receive total consciousness. But that's asking a lot from a group of two-bit hackers.

I guess if a man whom many believe is the physical manifestation of the Tibetan God of Compassion isn't safe, then I guess none of us are.

Is corporate espionage for real? Have you come across real-life examples? If so, shoot me a non-secret message at dbarney@redmondmag.com. And if you can spot the items I plagiarized, tell me from whom those lines were stolen.
