Carolyn P. Meinel Hall of Shame
Lets take a look at all of the jobs and titles she has taken on. In each
case, I quote where she used the name, or in some cases her comments
that lead me to believe she was claiming it. Much of this is from her
resume which has mysteriously disappeared off her web site...
Industrial Engineer 1998 MSNBC
"The group's animosity toward Meinel "has been going on for about
two years," said Meinel, an industrial engineer and writer whose
Research Engineer 1998 Quoted in ZDNet article.
"I'm not just inventing this stuff -- this stuff is all common
knowledge," Meinel said. "I am a research engineer. The majority
of books are not filled with 100 percent original stuff."
Consultant 1988 - present www.techbroker.com

research and business plan development for leading-edge technology
opportunities. Our customers include large and small companies,
governmental organizations, and academic institutions."
"We work in the arenas of: space technology, computer security,
freight transportation systems, Intelligent Transportation
Systems (ITS), innovative mobile communications systems"
Psychiatrist? 1998 Email
"The problem, as Solzhenitzen (sp?) put is that the battle line
between good and evil runs down the center of each of our hearts.
I have to fight my desires to raise heck just as I also feel urges
to do good. Since you are also human, you must also feel that
warfare in your heart, too."
Federal Prosecutor? 1997 repeated quotes
"I give 'get out of jail free cards.' Looks like you don't need
one. Guess how I feel about Bronc? He also gets to become a folk
hero in the not-too-distant future."
"Think about working out a get out of jail free card. I can arrange
one. We could start with your lawyer making the overtures with my
assistance in contacting the guys working on nailing you -- I know
who they are -- while keeping your name hidden until the deal is
ready to be made."
"This way you don't have to trust me. It is between your lawyer and
the guys getting ready to bust you. Your lawyer can get me to sign
something as part of the deal. They will trade you for a bigger fish."
"protestation of innocence on the HH list. If you do get busted, you
might be surprised at the role I play. Watch to see what happens with
Deprave, too, and how I might help."
(then this one..)
"Sure, like you say, I don't have the power to get you immunity from
anything you might ever have done -- by myself."
Cryptographer ?? IRC Chat 97-04-03
"No, I haven't discovered a weakness. Maybe if I had accepted
that NSA job I owuld have had the time to do so, jhowever:)" [sic]
(This chat was focused on the strengths of various cryptographic
algorithms. She ended with vague statements and this.)
Lawyer 1997 private mail quote
"If you happen to be a cybernazi who is having second thoughts, and
would like help making a deal with the authorities, please contact me
anonymously using my pgp key:"
Journalist 1997 private mail quotes
"But I make my living writing. I have to protect my copyright. Of

my livelihood, and I intend to only release stuff for unlimited
recopying rights at *my* discretion."
