Clifford Stoll is best known for work in tracking down the hacker Markus Hess in 1986, and his book which documents the event -- 'The Cuckoo's Egg.' After graduating from the University of Arizona with a PhD in 1980, he worked as the chief assistant engineer at WBFO, a Buffalo-based radio station. He worked here until beginning his investigation into Markus Hess, at which point he became employed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  In addition to 'The Cuckoo's Egg,' Stoll also wrote 'Silicon Snake Oil' and 'High-Tech Heretic: Reflections of a Computer Contrarian.' The keynotes by Clifford Stoll provide fascinating insight into his exciting and interesting career and life experiences.
