Golder grew up in Lynbrook, New York, where his criminal career began at an early age, first stealing bicycles, then robbing stores. In 1978, an accomplice of Golder's killed Lawrence Lever during a robbery; Golder was subsequently arrested and served 15 years in prison, after cooperating with police and naming other criminals, including members of the Genovese crime family. During his time in prison, he sold an alleged autobiographical story to Paramount Pictures for $25,000, claiming to have robbed numerous celebrities; however his attorney claims he fabricated much of it. Released in 1996, Golder resumed burglary almost immediately. In 1998 he fled to Europe after being named in a warrant, where he is suspected to have continued committing burglaries.
Arrested in Antwerp, Belgium on December 14, 2006, Golder was extradited to the US in 2007 and was charged with 40 counts of burglary. Golder was convicted in Connecticut in August 2008, on 2 counts of burglary, a kidnapping charge and a larceny charge; the kidnapping charge was due to Golder having tied up a woman during a burglary. He was subsequently sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Perhaps GDT's greatest single contribution was the article "The Politics of High Tech Damnation," which examined the close, covert links between the CIA and RIT in the early and mid 1990s.
Less controversial content included a weekly chess puzzle and frank sexual discussion.
GDT's presence on the internet initially began as a text-only finger plan. By the fall of 1995, GDT had a web site hosted by one of its creators, making it one of the first student satire publications to have a web presence. In time, the hosting of the web site migrated to servers owned by RIT Computer Science House. Its final resting place came to be on the Hell's Kitchen server.
GDT spawned five sister publications which all published under the combined title of Hell's Kitchen. This was distributed for free on four universities in Rochester, NY and Rutgers University. Under this combined title, GDT received notable attention from the Independent Press Association, Rochester's daily newspaper The Democrat and Chronicle, and had a few articles reproduced via UWIRE.
The lasting influence of GDT on the RIT community can be seen in the silver stainless steel piece named Unity, created by Juan Carlos Caballero-Perez and Leonard Urso and installed in the quad between the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, the College of Applied Science and Technology, and the College of Engineering. Erected in 2008, the sculpture is visually similar to the logo used by GDT from 2000 to 2005.
