When the fascinating John McAffee trainwreck/caper/merry-go-round was unfolding couple years ago I thought he was just another coked-out nutjob on his way to a fitting Bonnie & Clyde shootout finale in whatever backwater country of which the local authorities had finally had enough of his bullshit. But reading the Slashdot Q&A with him, this guy is _great_. He’s cuttingly intelligent, wryly articulate, and goddamn funny. I imagine a scoundrely-yet-lovable combination of Han Solo, Hunter S Thompson, and Ernest Hemingway. He is by no a means good person and makes no pretensions as such, but he a fine example of humanity as its most terribly awesome.
