Crowdfunding a documentary on Joybubbles, blind hacker and phone phreaker




I always feel a little sad when I see mention of Joybubbles. A kid who received horrible abuse, who escaped into the phone network even if he couldn’t actually leave his house.



I am totally down.

I’ve always been fascinated by this guy.


In the meantime:


Is this guy the inspiration for Irwin “Whistler” Emery, the blind character in Sneakers?


He is an inspiration. I haven’t watched Sneakers in a while, so I couldn’t say who else he might’ve been inspired by.
