iPhone Hacker "Geohot" Arrested for Possession

iPhone Hacker "Geohot" Arrested for Possession

Famous hacker George Hotz, also known as Geohot on the web, got himself arrested for possession of marijuana as he was heading to the annual SXSW conference in Austin, Texas.

Hotz’s arrest marked the last in a series of busts for carrying pot at the border patrol checkpoint in the small West Texas town.

Above the Law reports that when Hotz had to pass through a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, the sniffing dogs barked.

According to a source familiar with the case, Department of Homeland Security officers pulled Hotz over for more searching and found 1/4 oz. of marijuana and chocolate edibles equivalent to 1/8 oz. Hotz has a medical marijuana license in California.

Hotz was booked for a felony and posted $1,500 bail. He also made it to SXSW where he was able to give the following speech:

“You are turing computable. Yet the three pounds in your head is orders of magnitude more powerful than all the silicon based compute power on earth, draws between 20 and 40 watts, and we have almost no clue how it works.

In the coming decade, we will get our first glimpses into this magic box, and unveil age old questions such as the nature of consciousness. Coming from a reverse engineering background, I will propose some experiments to finally start cracking the problem open.

Imagine implanting a communications cortex into brains before the regions are specialized. Envision a high bandwidth pipe into the seat of consciousness. Forget virtual reality, what if we mess with the brain’s data structures on a lower level? I hope to leave you with a vision of what will be possible; the coming merger of man and machine may be crazier than we all think.”
