How To Become A Hacker

How To Become A Hacker is a primer on the philosophy and ethics of hacking, more than the mechanics of hacking. Starting from the point of view that “hackers build things, crackers break them”, this is a thoughtful, well-written and stimulating piece of creative writing. “Contrary to popular myth, you don't have to be a nerd to be a hacker. It does help, however, and many hackers are in fact nerds. Being a social outcast helps you stay concentrated on the really important things, like thinking and hacking.”
