Transcript: There was a book written in the year I was born which laid it all out, a hackers bible you could call it. Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution, written in 1984. Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution Whatever we do has been done, and whatever we think has been thought.
- Here are the core principles written way back then
- Access to computers—and anything which might teach you something about the way the world works—should be unlimited and total.
- All information should be free.
- Mistrust authority—promote decentralisation.
- Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race or position.
- You can create art and beauty on a computer.
- Computers can change your life for the better.
For me its a fine line between these revolutionary principles and what the Lulzsec, anonymous guys are doing, which is criminal. Where do I sit? What am I? I have the same tools as they do, share their ethos, I can build or tear down, tear down and rebuild, What will I do?
I do know Sensen will change the game, an emotional resonating megaphone to blow societies cobwebs away!
