Goldman Code Culprit Can Dance

In the latest breaking development of the Case of the Stolen Secret Sauce, my colleagues at Reuters have alerted me to a mildly amusing Youtube video of Sergey Aleynikov, the Goldman Sachs programmer who was arrested for allegedly stealing proprietary trading code from the firm, performing a ballroom dance on a cruise.

Since his arrest, Aleynikov has been released on bail, telling authorities “he had only intended to collect “open source” files on which he had worked but “later realized that he had obtained more files than he intended,” according to Reuters.

See Sergey performing a ballroom dance to “You Light Up My Life” below:
