Hackers Ethic

June 15, 2013

Reading through the quirky and eminently readable ebook by Steven Levy called Hackers - Heroes of the Computer Revolution. Intensely curious to make things - and life - work, there is a lot to learn here.  Of the original hackers in Building 26 at MIT, the book colorfully says: 'They laid claim to what blocks of time they could, and would "vulture time" with nocturnal visits to the lab on the off chance that someone who was scheduled for a 3 A.M. session might not show up.'Makes you think of the Hacking attitude.. Here are three of them:+ Access to computers - and anything that might teach you something about the way the world works should be unlimited and free. + Always yield to the Hands-On imperative+

 

Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race, or position.Here's the free version on Project Gutenberg
