Geek Marketing

This afternoon someone left this geeky ad for SSL encryption tacked outside my cubicle. In case the text is too small to read in the above picture, it starts with "Evil Internet bandits are plotting to bring me down..."

Gotta love the way advertisers try to market to computer science people - throw in a cute woman, use a Japanese anime style, and add some over-the-top dialog and hey, we'll have a successful product!
