Thread: The Hacker's system

    Arrow The Hacker's system

    Like always I woke up early to read through the recently posted threads. Like always I learned a little more about security. And like always some Hacker posted a messaged complaing about the laws and the stable government we live in.

    Now I do not consider myself "l33t" in anyway. But I do know however that, we (hackers) have two advantages over most people. One we understand something in away that others can't even dream of understanding. Some of us are opening to sharing idea's, technique's, and just basic knowledge. i may not be "l33t" you may not be either. But we both learn from each other. Advantage two is that we are a community of information. A community that no government and their laws can break apart. the more they try the more we unite.

    Big Brother is not all bad. Yes I disagree with some of the things they do, but where would you rather live, China or maybe in Afghanistan with the "Tahi-tubbies"?

    I don't think it is as much "understanding what they can't even dream of", as "having the framework of background knowledge to build from". I'm not putting down non-technical people, I don't know how to build a drywall, for instance. Nor do I think I could drive a bus very well, or pick coffee beans. But I wouldn't quite put the 'internet-savvy-people/hackers' situation as enlightened as all that.

    Advantage two is that we are a community of information. A community that no government and their laws can break apart. the more they try the more we unite.
    That sounds like a lot of religions and communities. Repression often makes religion flourish.

    Dunno about mainland China, I never lived there, visit, yes, hotels, yes, but not live. However, Hong Kong/SAR-PRC (Special Administrative Region of the Peoples' Republic of China) is very westernized, and I did live there for several years. A chance remark of a Chinese Govt. official was always siezed upon and people would start crying: "Augh! The mainland is trying to infringe on our rights! Quick! Candlelight vigil!"

    Uber is 'over' (as in 'above') in German, I believe. Originated from Nietzche's "Ubermensch" or "Overman", which described Nietzche's ideals of humanity. As for L33T, don't make fun of my sig! Only I'm allowed to make fun of my sig! My sig is part joke, really.

    p0wned/pw33ned/pweened/owned/0wned is all sort of "I beat him and gave him a smackdown!" I think.

    L33T/Elite/31337 is basically 'elite', or 'advanced'/'expert'/'good at whatever it is', and has since gained a connotation as 'cool' or something.

    I used to know where it came from, but I forgot. Someone wrote an article on the evolution of 'l33t', but I can't remember where I saw it.
