Indeed it's "good press". Lots of strong words, hype and tech-speak.
Fun to read.
Unfortunately it's another article that gets it wrong about the grant
money. "Oh my, Theo lost 2Mdollars because of his big mouth!".
Examples of wrong facts:
"In April his OpenBSD project had a chance to sop up more than two
million dollars from a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
grant..." (it had been going for more than a year)
"Smith was going to funnel the money to Theo's project, ..." (he was
already funneling it)
"The whole incident, in which a grant was given and taken away ..."
(it was given a while back, ran for a while and than taken away)

Is "hexdump -C /dev/random" a form of Aneristic Illusion?
