um...the blue box was born because the Bell Labs Technical Journal published the MF frequencies, not because Engressia had perfect pitch and could whistle 2600 hertz
Strom's exactly right. That's why back in the 60's and 70's there were blind phreaks who could whistle trunk sieze tones because of "perfect pitch", and thus the blue box was born.
A similar argument would run "Bill sprained his foot while baking a cake, and thus Cisco bought Linksys."

I have to disagree, ever wondered why did they (blind guys) want him ? He helped them and next started realizing his own ideas and not only in phreaking.
Draper never did anything very innovative

As a result people who suffer from visual disability have increased sense of smell, taste, touch and sensitive hearing and are more nimble then people who can see usually; to put it in perspective a couple months ago I was told I was "like the daredevil with a pimp cane" by someone I worked with.
Although this is a good thing to compensate for the lose of one of the 6 senses (its 6.. trust me.), it can also provide problems for the person; sometimes I just want to put a bag over my head to drawn out the world and all its noise, and when I feel pain like if I burn my hand I FEEL pain; Also due to taste being more sensitive food gets bland fast and its easier for me to taste what’s in it and what it is, so I’m always trying to try new things or old things in strange ways just for something new and different, since food gets boring fast… but on the up side more adult actives are more enjoyable due to increased sense of touch
And yes it WAS a blind man who schooled Capt. Crunch in the art of phreaking; here’s a google cache of a article on it, from captain crunch himself:
And one thing I want to stress is thinking is really very visual, at least for myself; I may not see the world but I can see it in my head and I can do allot of good designing and coding in my head thinking of parts as sphears, for example; Hence why I love c++ even though the binaries can sometimes be bigger then hey should be; you may have noticed the large number of OOP languages on the list they knew, for example.
Hmm.. maybe I should write something up like a faq or something.....
