Re: Job well done
That would be Trevor Eckhart.
And the reason that name is so fresh in my mind is because of a CNN opinion piece about SOPA. The author mentions how Carrier IQ initially threatened Eckhart, accusing of copyright infringement for posting information that was publicly available on the Carrier IQ Web site. The author's point was that, under SOPA, it would have been very easy for Carrier IQ to have either had this information quickly taken down or or to have had his site blacklisted. That would have stopped his disclosure dead in its tracks, and we likely wouldn't be discussing this now.
