"Hackers" sucks.

category: general [glöplog]
They killed my favorite site.

I don't like the "hackers" in the hacker trend, I hope you don't misunderstand me. We are supposed to be hackers too because we code real stuff and shit, aint we? We are not the trendy "hackers" and when I say that "hackers" sucks, I mean that trend we know from tv, but those "hackers" why killing sites?

This is sad.

who said hackers suck?
demoscene came from hackers.
and crackers for that matter.

The hobby and network hacker subculture is focused around the computer games industry and the exploitation of computer security. It is often referred to as the computer underground. According to its adherents, it centers around the idea of creative and extraordinary computer usage. Their main points of interest in practice are circumvention of access restriction measures in any thinkable manner and exceptional computer programming, the latter having lead to the partly separate demo scene.

Hacking is about doing new and cool shit with technology. It's not about crashing web pages, hackers already did that ages ago...

hacking is bugfreeing opensource projects and sending bug reports to developers all day long.
No, hacking would be sending patch files to developers all day long.

Hacking is breaking past network/infrastructure security mechanisms. Cracking is breaking past software security mechanisms. Phreaking is breaking past telephony security mechanisms.

All these "linux hackers", "open source hackers", "kernel hackers" are just coders who wanted to give themselves a cool title. Plain and simple. The whole original thing came from the hpasvcd tag so you knew what scenes the boards supported.

reminds me of a quote from def: 'you couldnt hack your way out a cardboard box with a knife!'
The movie is a 1995 one,and has some cool intuitions.

Moreover,the sountrack is just AWESOME.

No doubt about this.

Wow. That 'real hackers philosophy' is actually LESS accurate than the Hacker's movie. That's fucking pathetic impressive.

defbase: I beg to differ, the term 'hack' originates from MIT university:


All of the modern meanings seem to be rooted in its widespread use as slang throughout the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), starting in the 1960s. There, the original meaning of "hack" was an elaborate and flamboyant student prank;

(And I know Wikipedia ain't the ultimate truth, but I've read about the MIT origins of the word 'hack' many times before)

AFAIK, sparcus is semi-correct. It was actually not used to describe "an elaborate and flamboyant student prank" though.


1959: hack is defined in MIT's Tech Model Railroad Club Dictionary as "1) an article or project without constructive end; 2) a project undertaken on bad self-advice; 3) an entropy booster; 4) to produce, or attempt to produce, a hack(3)." hacker is defined as "one who hacks, or makes them." Much of the TMRC's jargon is imported into early computing culture.

I've read a better (and probably more accurate) summary of the story too, but I can't find it atm. There it said that the computer environment at MIT were very competitive (students competing who could write the coolest applications), and that "hacks" were done to improve the applications and pushing the bounds of the system. I think I read it in relations to the first computer game ever made or something like that.
