January 8th, 1986

 

                  Another one got caught today, its all over the paper. "Teenager arrested in computer crime scandal", "Hacker arrested after Bank Tampering........"

                  Damn kids. They're all alike.

              

                  But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's techno brain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?

                  I am a hacker enter my world.............

 

                  Mine is a world that begins with school..........I am smarter than most other kids, this crap they teach us bores me.......

                  Damn  underachiever. They're all alike.

                  

                  I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explain for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No Ms.Smith, I didn't show my work, I did it in my head......"

                  Damn kid. Probably copied. They're all alike.

 

                  I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to do. If it makes a mistake, its because I screwed up. Not because it doesn't like me...........or feels threatened by me...........or thinks I am smart ass....or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here......

                  Damn kid. All he does is play games. They're all alike.

And then it happened......a door opened to a world.......rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addicts veins an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day in-competencies is sought.............a board is found. " This is it.........this is where I belong...."

                  I know every one here.......even if Ive never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again.......I know you all...........

                  Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They're all alike.

 

                 

                  You bet your ass we're all alike......we've been spoon fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak.........the bits of meat that you did let slip through were prechewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, or by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

                  This is our world now......the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use  of service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you can call us criminals. We explore ..........and you call us criminals.

                  We seek after knowledge....and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias........and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us, and try to make us believe its for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

                  Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what say and think, and not what they look like. My crime is that of out smarting you, something you will never forgive me for.

                  I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual, but you cant stop us all.......after all..........we're all alike.

 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                              +++ The Mentor +++

I thought I would add some of these interesting text that I found...

THE HACKER

Another idiot has been locked up because of committing a senseless act with little or no thought to the consequences. Law enforcement needs to look good, the news becomes public domain and the press is unleashed, using attention grabbing headlines like: "Computer terrorist busted", or better, a "hacker".

Not only is the term misused, but it is usually only understood to be a mere synonym for "computer pirate", which is not only limitive, but completely wrong. Few people, even those who would define themselves as such, really know what "being a hacker" means.

The WWWebster Online Dictionary (http://www.m-w.com/), at the "hacker" entry says:

    Main Entry: hacker
    Pronunciation: 'ha-k&r
    Function: noun
    Date: 14th century
    1 : one that hacks
    2 : a person who is inexperienced or unskilled at a particular activity "a tennis hacker"
    3 : an expert at programming and solving problems with a computer
    4 : a person who illegally gains access to and sometimes tampers with information in a computer system

Among the various meanings quoted above, (besides definition 1, which is obvious...), definition 4 is the one which generally corresponds to the idea of "the hacker" that the majority of people have, while definition 3, is the one which is actually closer to the real meaning of "hacker", even if it is still rather limiting.

A dictionary rarely gives a definative answer, but it is always a good start.
For a more precise definition we can consult a specific dictionary such as the Jargon File, the most prestigious dictionary of hacker terminology, "a comprehensive compendium of hacker slang illuminating many aspects of hackish tradition, folklore, and humor", begun by Raphael Finkel of the university of Stanford in 1975, and then passed in management to Don Woods of the MIT, up to see the light of the printed paper in 1983, with the title of "The Hacker's Dictionary" (Harper & Row CN 1082, ISBN 0-06-091082-8, also known in the scene as "Steele-1983").

The on-line hacker Jargon File, version 2.9.10, 01 JUL 1992 (part of the Project Gutenberg), at the "hacker" entry says:

    :hacker: [originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe] n. 1. A person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users, who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary.
    2. One who programs enthusiastically (even obsessively) or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming.
    3. A person capable of appreciating {hack value}.
    4. A person who is good at programming quickly.
    5. An expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it; as in `a UNIX hacker'. (Definitions 1 through 5 are correlated, and people who fit them congregate.)
    6. An expert or enthusiast of any kind. One might be an astronomy hacker, for example.
    7. One who enjoys the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming or circumventing limitations.
    8. [deprecated] A malicious meddler who tries to discover sensitive information by poking around. Hence `password hacker', `network hacker'. See {cracker}.

Since this is a specific dictionary, the definition of hacker here is closer to its original meaning, even if it is necessary to extrapolate it from the varied proposed meanings in order to obtain the closest and most faithfull interpretation.
