This 25th anniversary edition of Steven Levy's classic book traces the exploits of the computer revolution's original hackers -- those brilliant and eccentric nerds from the late 1950s through the early '80s who took risks, bent the rules, and pushed the world in a radical new direction. With updated material from noteworthy hackers such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Stallman, and Steve Wozniak, Hackers is a fascinating story that begins in early computer research labs and leads to the first home computers. Levy profiles the imaginative brainiacs who found clever and unorthodox solutions to computer engineering problems. They had a shared sense of values, known as "the hacker ethic," that still thrives today. Hackers captures a seminal period in recent history when underground activities blazed a trail for today's digital world, from MIT students finagling access to clunky computer-card machines to the DIY culture that spawned the Altair and the Apple II.

Hacking Europe traces the user practices of chopping games in Warsaw, hacking software in Athens, creating chaos in Hamburg, producing demos in Turku, and partying with computing in Zagreb and Amsterdam. Focusing on several European countries at the end of the Cold War, the book shows the digital development was not an exclusively American affair. Local hacker communities appropriated the computer and forged new cultures around it like the hackers in Yugoslavia, Poland and Finland, who showed off their tricks and creating distinct “demoscenes.” Together the essays reflect a diverse palette of cultural practices by which European users domesticated computer technologies. Each chapter explores the mediating actors instrumental in introducing and spreading the cultures of computing around Europe. More generally, the “ludological” element--the role of mischief, humor, and play--discussed here as crucial for analysis of hacker culture, opens new vistas for the study of the history of technology.

A new industrial revolution. The age of making. From bits to atoms. Many people are excited by the possibilities offered by new fabrication technologies like 3D printers, and the way in which they are being used in hacker and makerspaces. But why is the power of hacking and making an idea whose time has come? Hackerspaces: Making the Maker Movement takes the rise of the maker movement as its starting point. Hacker and makerspaces, fab labs, and DIY bio spaces are emerging all over the world. Based on a study of hacker and makerspaces across the US, the book explores cultures of hacking and making in the context of wider social changes, arguing that excitement about the maker movement is not just about the availability of new technologies, but the kinds of citizens we are expected to be.

How does anonymity enable free speech — and how is it a threat? 'I think anonymity on the internet has to go away,' famously said by Randi Zuckerburg (sister of Mark), has become the policy for some, while the Stop Online Piracy Act mobilised millions to petition Congress is protest. Hacking the Future examines the ways that online anonymity influences politics, activism, religion and art. Cole Stryker presents a strong defense of anonymity and explores some of the tools and organisations that have sprung up around the issue as it has evolved with the ubiquity of the Internet. Cogent and compelling, his examination of online identity, both false and real, is an essential read for the networking age.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Informatik - Sonstiges, Note: 2.5, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Was sind eigentlich Hacker? Wie haben sich Hacker im Wandel der Zeit verändert und wie werden Hacker von ihrem Umfeld wahrgenommen? Diese Fragen stehen im Fokus der vorliegenden Bachelorarbeit. Dabei geht es neben formaler Definition auch um die Untersuchungen verschiedener Zielsetzungen einzelner Gruppierungen und darum, wo sich Hacker von Computerkriminellen oder anderen Nutzern abgrenzen. Im Kern der Arbeit stehen das gesellschaftliche Bild gegenüber Hackern und der mediale Einfluss darauf. Das Ziel ist, mit dieser Arbeit eine klare Definitionsgrundlage zu schaffen, um das schwammige Bild über dieses Thema zu schärfen.
