At Wired’s Threat Level, Kevin Poulsen posts the transcript of linux developer Hans Reiser’s confession.
in the most unsophisticated chokehold that any judo instructor would completely despise you for ever using, I choked her. … And this is the kind of choke that people who have no martial skills at all would employ and uhm, and yet it uh, uh, was completely painless for her. It’s the least painful way to die.
Reiser was sentenced to 15-to-life earlier today. With time already served, he’ll be out after 13 at the earliest.
