Blogging about Kensington pulling a Kryptonite: Why so late?

EuroFOO was in August last year. In September, I blogged about Barry “The Key” Wels (of Toool fame) opening a Kensington lock with a roll of toilet paper.

Now, nearly a year after the original event, the major blogs are picking it up: Boing Boing, Scoble, Gizmodo, Darren Barefoot, Steve Rubel, Loic Le Meur and others have it.

Usually, a story like this is all over the blogosphere, especially as this event happened very close to the Kryptonite Bic Pen hack, to which everyone is comparing it now (and rightly so).

I just wonder how this could be un-discovered for such a long time, given that it happened during an O’Reilly event…

  1. Kensington - another Kryptonite?There must be something with the combination of a letter K and a lock company… Kensington is another lock manufacturer to get their product 'exposed'. Gizmodo reported that apparently all you need to break into a Kensington laptop lock …

  3. Agreed, this shows the limits of blogs spreading news, however it is the same with the MSM, very often news don’t reach papers because they don’t reach journalists or they don’t get interested, but I agree with your remarks.
