txt :: The real HACKERS are back!



Recently the word "hacking" and "hacker" started to appear in internet media more and more.

Is it related to some virus/worm epidemic or somebody hacking pentagon once again? The answer surprisingly enough is "NO"!

With the rise of Web 2.0 and appearance of things like blogs, and other types of freely available way of expressing yourself on the internet, the meaning of the work "hacker" began to change. It started to redefine itself from the negative image that media gives it into something new, or maybe we've already seen that good old new?

Originally the word "hacker" meant somebody who likes to find new innovative ways to use existing technologies that these things were not meant to do by their creator/manufacturer.

That sounds awfully familiar. Right now we hear more and more of the hackers that figure out new ways to use gadgets, computer programs and pretty much anything around us that they can get their hands on. But they don't do it to harm the almighty "Big Brother" or to start a nuclear war with one phone call. No, they do it because they are interested in how things are working and what will happen if they push these three buttons together, or maybe one by one.

The world is finally waking up from an informational oppression by ruling parties. We finally have a right to be vocal and have the whole world that IS listening and waiting for our scream, whisper or maybe it's just a wink. Finally we can set definitions right instead of believing in everything that the big talking box [TV] tells us.

I love Internet and think it's one of the greatest inventions ever made that could stand side by side with Newton's Gravity and Einstein's Relativity and hold its head straight and high!

Funny, coz i'm the first one to make a comment to my post :)

I just wanted to add that maybe pretty soon we will see senators making educated decisions about Internet. So far that wasn't the case for a lot of officials.

Technology is here, and we need to learn what it is and why it's good/bad for us, whether we want it or not.

Well, honestly I should admit that I was in the past a person who did not like or in any way appreciate hackers or did not even want to be around people who call themselves hackers. I have a simple explanation to that: it was because of the lack of education. Yes, as simple as that. I was prejudice to something that I did not know what it really was. Then I started meeting people that opened my eyes to the real concept, as much as they could to a truly yours computer illiterate person.
I now have absolutely different perception to the word and concept "hacker" I probably would not be able to explain it here, cause I kind of understant it in my own way, because of the mentioned above statement :)
I know that it may be a little bit off the topic, but it kind of made me realize that even though something seems "bad" or rough around the edges, it still does not give anyone exuse to negatively judge it. Ok, I am gonna stop right here before I go into the whole judging other people discussion, although we should have one as well.
By the way, I am loving discussions that we have been having lately. Thanks guys. In fact we should make posts about common issues and have disscussions or maybe even respectful debates, not on politics though because the chances of it ending good are not high :)

It's very interesting how for me the term "hacker" (not script-kiddie or poser) is an achievement of a lifetime. To be called a hacker (not by somebody but by me, inside my head) for me is like recieving a nobel prize inside my mind.

Hackers are just people who seek knowledge and are interested in tinkering with what's viewed as given and known. They are just not understood by others because they are different.

I second what Lilusha said about the discussions lately. I love them! (sorry I can't be on everyday :-<) I don't have much on "hacker", except that I'm glad I know 2 damn good ones.
