I discovered the multi-talented pirate-of-sorts Moxie Marlinspike after watching his Anarchist Yacht Clubb sailing documentary, Hold Fast. Young, crafty, funny, well-spoken -- he's a beacon for the D.I.Y. community. Upon further research, I came to find out that he's not only a self-made sailor, but also an avid techie-wizard, independent computer security researcher, hitchhiker, railroad tramp, and excellent blogger to name a few. I was blown away, and reading his blog impressed me even more. His website thoughtcrime.org includes a compendium of awesome stories of his adventures. He is totally luminous and inspires me to become more of an inventive, adventurous, (crusty), simple, technologically savvy person. Thank you Moxie Marlinspike.
