SARASOTA, Fla. – Reporters meet interesting people, with interesting stories to share.
Malcolm Riddell's cautionary tale about Internet security is one we should all pause to listen to, as it could have been any one of us.
You can watch and listen to the strange confluence of internet wireless signals, child pornography and Pringles potato chips here.
But Riddell is more than a victim of an Internet crime.
He used to work as a spy for the CIA in China and throughout Asia. Today, he's an investment banker who advises on China.
He's no longer spying, and because of that, he feels the freedom to share his observations and thoughts on a country he says he fell in love with.
For good reason, Americans are watching China closely since its economy directly impacts us here (and everyone else around the world).
His insights offer a glimpse into a society, economy and leadership that is increasingly important to understand. Watch an interview with him below.
