    Some photos of Adrian I took at the H2K2 conference last year:
    Adrian says he'll turn himself in at 9 am PT/noon ET on the steps of the 
    Sacramento courthouse. TechTV is apparently sending a crew, so perhaps 
    those of us who can't be there in person will be able to see how it goes.

    Adrian Lamo, the so-called homeless hacker who claims responsibility for a 
    series of high-profile electronic intrusions over the last two years, is 
    negotiating with the FBI to surrender over criminal charges.
    Lamo, 22, said his attorney is talking with the U.S. Attorney's office in 
    New York City over unspecified allegations of criminal misconduct. On 
    Thursday, FBI agents showed up at his parents' home in Sacramento, Calif., 
    Lamo said in a telephone interview Friday evening, during which he would 
    not disclose his location.

    Hacker Adrian Lamo has agreed to walk into a federal courthouse in 
    Sacramento, California, Tuesday morning and turn himself in to law 
    enforcement officials, Lamo and his attorney said Monday.
    In exchange, the government will release him on bail within hours, and 
    allow him to transport himself to New York to face charges stemming from 
    his penetration of the New York Times last year, said deputy federal public 
    defender Mary French.
