I agree with James about parents not naming their children Ammon. To this I
would add, parents: please do not let your children be dragged into the idea
that on the internet you have a fictional persona that has no real world
consequences. I have been stunned of what people will say and do on the
internet that they would never dream of doing in their "real" life.
It's not just thinking that they won't get caught. The entire value
system seems to change to this artificial set. When I worked with young people
in several different assignments I told them "the internet is forever"
and gave them a copy of an article called "The End of Forgetting."
Every thoughtless email and text message can come back to "byte" you.
Parents, please don't name your kid Ammon.
He should have approached the airline on the first day that he cracked the
website but he got greedy. I'm sure the airline would have been able to
work with him if he would have shared his knowledge about the vulnerability and
who knows, maybe even willing to give him an incentive for the FYI.
Is this the same Ammon Cunningham touted by Utah Business Magazine as one who
had studied at BYU and as the magazine states; "After studying philosophy at
Brigham Young University, Cunningham began consulting with a multi-billion
dollar company, implementing a self-designed recruitment program across its
600-plus international franchises."
Impartial? Evidently not.
@impartial - what does this have to do with BYU? Was he a student there? Did
he use BYU computers for the crime? Why the hate toward BYU?
Anytime someone from BYU has any success or fame, the DNews touts that
relationship. They missed this one.
