I attended Tridge's talk today. The best part of the demonstration was that
he asked the audience for each command he should type in. And the audience instantly called out each command in unison, ("telnet", "help", "echo clone | nc").
So, not only was the so-called reverse engineering effort demonstrated, but it was also independently replicated by hundreds of people in about two minutes.
