For Christopher Curry at Shrimpo LLC, Technology is More than a Tool - it's a Weapon in the War on Terror
Experiences included in upcoming documentary "Bin Laden: A Dynasty of Terror," Joel Soler's follow up
film to his successful "Uncle Saddam."
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - September 1, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Shrimpo LLC
(www.shrimpo.com) a consultancy group focused on streamlining business
communications between the human interface and technology, today announced that
it had seized control of the Binladin Group's official website, whose domain
registration expired simultaneously with the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
"The controversy remains whether the 9/11 expiration dates were just a remarkable
coincidence or if this truly was a warning code," said Christopher Curry,
Principal of Shrimpo LLC and Internet technology consultant.
Curry placed an email catchall server behind these domains in an attempt to aid
in the war on terror. "A lot of email is still coming in and we have offered to
turn over all information collected to Federal authorities," Curry said. "A
government investigation is pending. Harvested emails range from corporate
correspondence to messages being exchanged between Binladin family members and
their employees. About 2,000 messages are received daily through
saudi-binladin-group.com and sbg-ipp.com."
Christopher Curry counsels caution when evaluating these emails. "It's important
to keep any kind of wild speculation in check," Curry said. "We once had an email
that mentioned Canadian borders and Islamabad in the same paragraph which raised
our level of concern immediately. Once we had the correspondence translated,
though, it turned out to be a discussion about a marriage dowry to a Canadian
college student. The Urdu translator and I got a good laugh out of that one."
Curry will be discussing his online activities with the Binladin Group site in
the upcoming documentary "Bin Laden: A Dynasty of Terror," Joel Soler's follow up
film to his successful "Uncle Saddam." Curry's entire technological experiment
with the Binladin site is documented on Christopher Curry's blog at
Recently, Curry instituted an email auto response system to discourage email. To
call further attention to his messages, Curry included banner ads from Man to Man
Personals, the Jewish Dating Network, and the Arab Dating Network. Suddenly
Curry's previously ignored auto messages received immediate attention, but not
the kind he'd hoped for.
Curry began receiving online death threats and the Binladin Group contacted Time
Warner in an attempt to reverse hijack the domain. Time Warner Cable researched
the matter and decided in favor of Shrimpo LLC. Despite the vote of support,
Curry pulled the plug on his auto response messages.
"For me, this experiment has been about confronting and dealing with all of the
questions that I have with September 11th," explained Curry. "For me, this is a
way of personally immersing myself in resolving the tragic events of 9/11."
Curry is hopeful that by seizing these websites and raising public awareness
about them, he will be able to bring light to new possible intelligence sources,
and unveil any facts that may have existed between Binladin and the war on
