He'll be making 6 figures in Silicon Valley in a month.
Exactly. People here are acting like some of the world's best hackers (formerly blackhat) are unable to get jobs

Has the world forgotten how he was the first to jailbreak/unlock the iPhone? How he's kept Apple scrambling for the next anti-jailbreak patch everytime?

So I beg you to try again and find me a MAJOR company that would hire Geohot?
Why does it have to be a MAJOR company? Could be a small IT security consulting firm. Small company does not mean poor salary

I don't think you'd find an admin that feels differently...That's the difference...If you do, that's fantastic but, my point here is, his notoriety has blacklisted him.

This entire "fiasco" is definitely of public record when it can be googled...A background check from anyone would reveal a suite filed and any company worth 2 ****s would provide a complete internet history of that person.

This is 2011...When I do a background check on you, I get a phone number, all addresses, estimated income, all google links that are confirmed from you including Facebook access, youtube access, myspace access...I get your life VIA a PDF.

Any employer that does an official background check on Geohot will get the same...

You'd higher that person as an admin of a major company considering what's available?

That's why I consider this a loss for him...He's essentially limited himself from a product and a market in a single swoop.

Yes he didn't have to pay millions of dollars but, it's essentially deterred him from ever earning that salary.

Then someone who's less picky about their employee's personal life will get him and their company will win over yours and you'll go bankrupt.

Just because you're a prudish conformist.

LOL! Sir Admin of Alienware, I already pointed out references to 2 of the largest tech companies and one of the largest social companies on Earth that have hired hackers for their efforts. What more do you want?

All of the companies you mentioned, didn't file a major lawsuit.

And Track, after that PM, I put you on ignore...I can't see your drivel so, please stop referring to me as I'm being told via PM.

Again, you still fail to see the point. There have been MANY hackers in the past that have committed far worse crimes (even though no crime was committed in this case) and still have been hired by companies. You're just one of the few managers who can't see through a person's past mistakes and forgo a person's technical expertise.

You simply don't get it.

All that "notoriety".. is nothing but publicity. And in this industry, there is no such thing as bad publicity.

Besides, you're missing the point, as usual.

We're talking about a company who's LOOKING TO HIRE A HACKER.

Do you think they'll be like "Oh no, this HACKER isn't clean-cut enough.."

No!

You don't not hire a Hitman because he's not into kitties.

When the kid starts rapping on youtube... I think the professionalism factor could be questionnable...

Yeah, I'm sure people on here are PM'ing you to tell you that Track is quoting your comments because they are telepathically aware that you ignored him.
