The utterly gripping story of the most outrageous case of cyber piracy prosecuted by the US Department of Justice. A former US Navy intelligence officer, David Locke Hall was a federal prosecutor when a bizarre-sounding website, CRACK99, came to his attention. It looked like Craigslist on acid, but what it sold was anything but amateurish: thousands of high-tech software products used largely by the military, and for mere pennies on the dollar. Want to purchase satellite tracking software? No problem. Aerospace and aviation simulations? No problem. Communications systems designs? No problem. Software for Marine One, the presidential helicopter? No problem. With delivery times and customer service to rival the world's most successful online retailers, anybody, anywhere - including rogue regimes, terrorists, and countries forbidden from doing business with the United States - had access to these goods for any purpose whatsoever. But who was behind CRACK99, and where were they? The Justice Department discouraged potentially costly, risky cases like this, preferring the low-hanging fruit that scored points from politicians and the public. But Hall and his colleagues were determined to find the culprit. They bought CRACK99's products for delivery in the United States, buying more and more to appeal to the budding entrepreneur in the man they identified as Xiang Li. After winning his confidence, they lured him to Saipan - a US commonwealth territory where Hall's own father had stormed the beaches with the marines during World War II. There, they set up an audacious sting that culminated in Xiang Li's capture and imprisonment. The value of the goods offered by CRACK99? A cool $100 million. An eye-opening look at cybercrime and its chilling consequences for national security, CRACK99 is like a caper that resonates with every amazing detail. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Peckham.

CAMERA, or the Community Cyberinfrastructure for Advanced Marine Microbial Ecology Research and Analysis, is a microbial ecology research project which was announced in January 2006.The project aims to serve the needs of the microbial ecology research community by creating a vast data repository and a bioinformatics tools resource that will address many of the unique challenges of metagenomic analysis. The project is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation which awarded a 7-year, $24.5-million research grant to the CAMERA project, beginning in January 2006. CAMERA is devoted to serving the needs of scientists studying the complexity of organisms as they function in natural ecosystems. The group is managed by: Principal Investigator Larry Smarr (UCSD), Executive Director Paul Gilna (UCSD). CAMERA helps scientists access and work with data from the Venter Institute''s Global Ocean Sampling Expedition. In 2007, the GOS dataset was the largest ever released in the public domain. The group also places many other datasets for download on its website.
