Cyan Banister talks to hacker and internet troll Andrew Auernheimer, aka Weev, about his Crunchie award win and his conflict with AT&T.

In January 2011, a case was filed against two Goatsec members, Andrew Auernheimer (aka "weev") and Daniel Spitler (aka "JacksonBrown"). Andrew was convicted on November 20th, 2012 and is awaiting his sentencing. While he waits to find out if he will face two consecutive five year terms, Andrew is forcing himself to live in an austere and cold environment to prepare himself for prison.

Before going to jail, Andrew's bucket list of what he wanted was the Crunchie that TechCrunch awarded to him in June 2010. He received that statue last week for his public service.
