Quote
Increasingly innovative computer scripts are being created that automate entire criminal processes—processes that, in the past, used to require human intervention.  Don’t like your boss?  Threaten to tell his wife about the affair with his secretary unless he pays you to keep quiet.  The problem was that your boss knew it was you who was blackmailing him, opening the blackmailer to potential negative consequences.  Now, however, thanks to the miracle of technology, no need for a human being to become involved in such a dirty and murky affairs.  The entire process can be scripted and automated.

Surprisingly, no mention of Bitcoin in the article.

Still around.
