Post J.K. Rowling talks hackers & spoilers in new interview segment

In a newly-revealed interview segment J.K. Rowling talks about the potential for hackers to have obtained her Harry Potter manuscripts and the spoilers they could have unveiled.

Quote:
JKR: "Have they got it from my hard drive?" I'm so ignorant about PC's - I would think, "Can they? Can they crawl through the wires and get it? Physically? In little balaclavas?"

Every time my computer did anything that computers do, freeze or something, it would always cross my mind and I'd think, 'what have I let happen?'

At the very final stages of seven, I did take everything off my PC completely and it was just on the laptop, and I even resented having to think like that, but this was the last book, and I so wanted people to get it in paper form to read, and not from a scam or a spoiler. So I did get a little bit more security conscious right at the end.

MA: So it was never connected to the internet?

JKR: Yeah. Actually, no, that's not true. I did connect it to the Internet - what am I saying? [laughs] I did. But I did treat it all with a little bit more reverence. But actually, yes, I did connect it to the Internet so what's the difference? Oops. It's so nice to be able to say these things now.

She said that she resented having to think that someone could so easily hack and steal her work - she should never have resented thinking that! She was being very cautious and that is good. Having your hard work (your life's work) stolen and released early on the Internet would be completely dreadful.

I'm amazed she didn't have a panic attack towards the end, with all of that pressure on her to finish the book.

There were alot of supposed spoilers out there before book 7 came out, but I didn't read any of them so I don't know if they were true or not. But I think for the most part JKR's team were very succesful in keeping the book TOP SECRET!! Most of the stuff I knew before I read the book came from hard core theorizing not spoilers.
