#1 - why do all cyber crime experts have a sweet accent?
#2 - The idea of cybercrime as a service is disturbing, but pretty interesting. In all major "crime waves" through out time, the criminals evolve in terms of their methodology. Is the 3rd level of evolution when cyber criminals productize and market their skills. Click a paypal icon and make the competition's commerce site fail. Terrible.

Interesting statistics I didn't realize that internet use was rising so quickly. I'm assuming this would mostly be in the developing world, I suppose that this is indicative of good change as more people have access to modern resources such as the web.
Pay for DDOS on youtube, I suppose this is not surprising, but seems like attribution would be made easier. There has definitely been a trend in cyber criminals providing more user friendly interfaces, even cryptolocker has a help desk of sorts.
This was a really good brief talk, it's not always that someone gives a performance this polished. Plus as he said it's cool when you actual get to find attribution. The wireless info was actually really interesting, I didn't realize that was broadcast and how where you had been could be ascertained.

TED Talks awesome as always.
Good vs Bad. Its always good that wins, even if it takes some time.
The criminals vs investigators count is somewhat disturbing. There should be an exponential increase in the number of technical savvy investigators of crimes, to make internet a peaceful place.
