You may remember that in 2008 I was challenged by technical journalist Marie Boran to steal her identity using only information I could get online.  I subsequently spoke at a number of conferences on the subject and you can find a copy of that presentation online.

Last Thursday both Marie and I were invited onto the Daily Show to discuss that project and the implications for people’s online privacy.  It was an interesting talk and fun to watch Claire Byrne’s face when I mentioned I had been following her twitter stream.  The interview is now available online (the interview begins 17 minutes and 50 seconds into the show).  Also the tips I gave are available on the Daily Show’s website.
