The long road to catching “Bitcoin Baron,” the “Internet’s most inept criminal”

Jack Smith IV has a piece on Randall Charles Tucker (a/k/a “Bitcoin Baron”), who was recently arrested. Smith’s piece includes a recap of some of Tucker’s attacks on sites, but also includes chat transcripts that give insight into his thinking and behavior.

The Observer article will be of interest to those interested in the motivation and psychology of hackers or hacker-wannabes, but really, reading this piece, I feel like I’m watching a train wreck.
