Not a very nice word around here.

Don't take people's word for things, Sam, but do more research yourself.

The internet and even people presenting at conferences are not
indisputable sources.

Brossard included the abbreviation PIC in one of the slides for his
talk about how he supposedly created a backdoored BIOS (using an open
source x86 firmware implementation).

He identified PIC as one of the components on PC mainboards.

Unfortunately he seems to think that PIC refers to the family of
microcontrollers developed by Microchip instead of what it really
refers to; something very different, a quite well-understood and
rather fundamental component for everyone with strong knowledge about
PC technology.
