They say What You See Is What You Get... but Kevin "Boingthump" Phenicle could always see more than most people.
In the world of phone phreaks, hackers, and scammers, he's a legend. His exploits are hotly debated: could he really get free long-disctance calls by whistling into a pay phone? Did his video-game piracy scheme accidentially trigger the first computer virus? And did he really dodge the FBI by using their own wiretapping software against them? Is he even a real person? And if he's ever caught, what would happen to a geek like him in federal prison?
Inspired by the incredible stories of real-life hackers, WIZZYWIG is the thrilling tale of a master manipulator -- his journey from precocious child scammer to federally-wanted fugitive, and beyond. In a world transformed by social networks, data leaks, and digital uprisings, WIZZYWIG reminds us how much power can rest in the hands of an audacious kid with a keyboard.
