In a 17 Oct 1994 UseNet posting, Prof. Spaffordat Purdue, who has also actually seen the worm's source code at Cornell thatwas written by Morris (including the comment lines by Morris thatare not present in the decompiled versions), said:
Morris was the first person to be arrested, tried, and convictedfor writing and releasing a malicious computer program.
The judge declared: "Those who seek to wreak mindless havoc on one ofthe vital tools of our age cannot expect lenient treatment."
Pile's punishment was more severe than other criminalswho have written and released malicious programs.
Apparently, a substantial fraction of malicious programs are created by people in developing countries that have weak or ineffective legal systems (e.g., writing malicious programs may not be a crime, the police and judges may be corrupt, etc.).
No more lost-tampon essays, in other words, in the age of Donald Trump. And yet I find myself missing aspects of the personal-essay Internet that the flashiest examples tended to obscure. I still think of the form as a valuable on-ramp, an immediate and vivid indication of a writer’s instincts—one that is accessible to first-time writers and young people who haven’t developed experience or connections. The Internet made the personal essay worse, as it does for most things. But I am moved by the negotiation of vulnerability. I never got tired of coming across a writerly style that seemed to exist for no good reason. I loved watching people try to figure out if they had something to say.
Emma defeated Delta senior Maggie Thompson in the championship match, 4-1, 4-2. Yorktown junior Halie Hardwick defeated Delta sophomore Abby Shafer for third place.
Jason defeated Delta sophomore Alec Robillard in the final match, 4-1, 4-1. Both players had strong victories in their pools, as Jason knocked off Muncie Central senior Andrew Fox and Alec defeated Delta junior Joe Wegener. Joe won the third-place match over Andrew by default.

Before we came back on the air, we were both saying that we’ve been just flat-out blown away by the talent at this year’s Intertemporal Tennis Writers Classic.
A more eccentric instance of tennis-as-metaphor pops up in Shakespeare’s “Pericles,” where the tennis court is compared with the ocean. It occurs in the part of the play that scholars now believe was written by a tavern-keeper named George Wilkins. Pericles has just been tossed half dead onto the Greek shore and is discovered by three fishermen. He says,
David Foster Wallace wrote about tennis because life gave it to him—he had played the game well at the junior level—and because he was a writer who in his own way made use of wilder days, turning relentlessly in his work to the stuff of his own experience. But the fact of the game in his biography came before any thought of its use as material. At least I assume that’s the case. It can be amazing how early in life some writers figure out what they are and start to see their lives as stories that can be controlled. It is perhaps not far-fetched to imagine Wallace’s noticing early on that tennis is a good sport for literary types and purposes. It draws the obsessive and brooding. It is perhaps the most isolating of games. Even boxers have a corner, but in professional tennis it is a rules violation for your coach to communicate with you beyond polite encouragement, and spectators are asked to keep silent while you play. Your opponent is far away, or, if near, is indifferently hostile. It may be as close as we come to physical chess, or a kind of chess in which the mind and body are at one in attacking essentially mathematical problems. So, a good game not just for writers but for philosophers, too. The perfect game for Wallace.

But who would Nabokov and his few marvelous pages face in the finals?“Some dreamed about seeing him face Martin Amis, since it would be so meta — largely because Amis once used tennis to compare the writing of Nabokov and James Joyce.
