Ebook Size : 2. Beneath their often unimposing exteriors, they were adventurers,visionaries, risk-takers, artists. Among themselves, they knew how far one could go by immersion into the deep concentration of the hacking mind-set: one could go infinitely far. I came to understand why true hackers consider the term an appellation of honor rather than a pejorative. As I talked to these digital explorers, ranging from those who tamed multimillion dollar machines in the s to contemporary young wizards who mastered computers in their suburban bedrooms, I found a common element, a common philosophy that seemed tied to the elegantly flowing logic of the computer itself. It was a philosophy of sharing, openness, decentralization, and getting your hands on machines at any cost to improve the machines and to improve the world. This Hacker Ethic is their gift to us:something with value even to those of us with no interest at all in computers. It is an ethic seldom codified but embodied instead in the behavior of hackers themselves. I would like to introduce you to these people who not only saw, but lived the magic in the computer and worked to liberate the magic so it could benefit us all. These people include the true hackers of the MIT artificial intelligence lab in the fifties and sixties; the populist, less sequestered hardware hackers in California in the seventies; and the young game hackers who made their mark in the personal computer of the eighties. This is in no way a formal history of the computer era, or of the particular arenas I focus upon.

That still blows my mind.

And thus, a lack of learning how the rest of the world perceives reality. And for the gender thing?

I see it even more, and I keep wondering how much of our current situation is "inevitable" given the history, what would have happened if the history had been different, etc.

It also contexualizes the history of sexism in computing against the history of sexism in general wait, did that sentence make any sense? My mother was one of three women in her high school trig class, and IIRC she was the only one who finished. So the idea of the MIT hackers that there's some biological difference that kept women out of their world is nuts.

High Definition Ebooks: Hackers Heroes of the Computer Revolution!

Their world -- despite its lack of football -- was hyper-masculine, disconnected from anything that wasn't the guys and the machines. The story of the woman whose program got screwed up because of an unauthorized upgrade by hackers -- and she was doing something "real" -- made a impression on me as far as that's concerned.

But that impression of hackerdom being a male province only fed on itself, so that women who were interested in computers were an oddity. For example, what happened to the "housewives" who disappeared into the community center computer? Why weren't they able to become part of the hacker community? As I said, I'm still processing. And that said, it was a well-written book; fantastic story-telling.

Possibly related: the overwhelming maleness of the hacker culture throughout the entire book. A lack of balance?

Also possibly related: a quote about Stallman p - "He recognized that his personality was unyielding to the give-and-take of common human interaction. Made me bust up laughing.

Another somewhat random observation: baby boomers. What does all this mean to the things I've ranted about on my blog?

I had that in the back of my head while I was reading, based on an email conversation with the person who sent me the book. I'm still not sure.

It does make the underlying ethos of Facebook make more sense, although not any less repellent. In fact, maybe it's more so, because there's a historical thread connecting it to guys crawling through the ceiling to steal keys out of desks. That still blows my mind. And thus, a lack of learning how the rest of the world perceives reality. And for the gender thing?
