McAfee claims he’s innocent and the victim of a corrupt government who is trying to get him.
Yesterday, the story took a surprising turn when Vice Magazine bragged that they had scooped everyone because they were “with John McAfee right now, suckers.”
Along with the short story, the magazine posted a picture taken with an iPhone, and as The Next Web explains the magazine simply forgot to scrub the picture of the location metadata included within.
For a guy on the run, that’s not great news. The Next Web tracked the GPS coordinates to a location in Guatemala near the Belize border. Please continue @: http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2012/12/04/166487197/betrayed-by-metadata…

The Make-Belief Launching of SAL — originally published in 2011
In mid 2008, CaliforniaALL was ready to rock and roll. It had just obtained Section 501(C)(3) approval, Ruthe Ashley was hired as a CEO, a sub rosa transfer of $780,000 had been received from the Cal Bar Foundation, and close to another million dollars from utility companies poured in.
In addition to having and employing “best practices,” CaliforniaALL was fortunate to have on board talented and dedicated staff such as Sarah E. Redfield, Program Director; Consultant Larissa Parecki, office manager; Ginger Bredemeier, Writing Projects Manager, Human Resources, Grant Projects; and Matt Cumida, executive administrative assistant.
According to Professor Redfield’s CV, between 2008 and 2009 she “launched” CaliforniaALL, participated in RFP, and “launched” the Saturday Academy of Law at U. C. Irvine.
Similarly, CaliforniaALL’s own publication indicates that with CaliforniaALL’s grant funds, U.C. Irvine developed and implemented the Saturday Academy of Law, and that by 2009 CaliforniaALL’s mission was visibly at work through the program. See below.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. Instead, as most transactions involving CaliforniaALL, the California Bar Foundation and the State Bar of California, it is imbued with fraud and egregious acts dishonesty and deception.
Specifically, the Saturday Academy of Law has been in existence for many years, and is part of the University of California Irvine’s Center for Educational Partnerships (CFEP), which has many programs to benefit the community, such as “UCI Saturdays with Sciences,” “Saturday Academy in Mathematics,” and the like.
For example, as part of a field trip to law firms, the photo below was taken in 2005 when the UCISAL group visited the law offices of Sheppard Mullin.
In 2007, UCISAL paid a visit to Allen Matkins. (See below.) We have intentionally blurred the photo to maintain the students’ privacy. Seated on the right is Robert Hamilton. On the far right is Karina Hamilton, a former Allen Matkins associate, wife of Robert Hamilton, and Director of UCISAL.
Please double-click on the photo for full view.
In fact, UCI’s own literature gives no credit to CaliforniaALL. (See below.)
