Spyware Crusaders

One of my first photos of today's ASC conference included friends, Ben Edelman and Dave Methvin as they planned their presentations.
Spyware Crusaders
The Commissioner of the FTC, Orson Swindle(yea, that's really his name) introduced Dave from PC Pitstop and referred to Ben as a "Spyware Crusader". Ben said it was the first time he's been given that title, but I'm thinking it sure sounds better than zealot.

Dave presented some very scary examples of web sites easily found by kids doing simple searches. Ben followed up with examples of how reputable companies end up feeding the adware middle men which in turn feed the folks installing the spyware. There's a good reason both Dave and Ben keep getting invited to speak at these events.

Hi Bill... Visited your blog for the first time today. Altho, have WIN PATROL and love it ! A quick thought... wasn't it Woody Allen who said he'd never join a club that would allow him to be a member ?... sounds like something Groucho would say.... but I always attributed it to Woody. Just wonderin... Have a great vacation !
