Gary McKinnon, the computer hacker who was the subject of a 10-year legal battle over US extradition, has reinvented himself as a search expert.


Mr McKinnon launched Small SEO, a site where he charges 40 an hour to help businesses get mentioned in search results.

I guess he won't be considering a US vacation with his earnings. :)

Thanks.
I always wondered what happened in that 10-year battle.

He was cleared sometime back, but this is the first thing I've read about him since he was cleared.

As a fellow aspie, I am pleased that he has managed to move on from it. Although, I am surprised that he didn't move into security or similar.

I also wonder how much he is relying on the backlinks from the Free Gary website, as many of them will be from authority/news sites.
