    Question How would YOU define a hacker ?

    How would YOU define a hacker ?

    I have to admit I'm pretty new to the hacking scene, but I have been into computers since I was about 7yrs old and they pretty much dominate my life, but I mean, what actually makes a good hacker ?

    PS. Please don’t reply if your one of those malicious hackers that like destroying ppls data as I dont really value your opinion, thx

    hacker

    It could have many definations. From what is considered a modernday malious hacker, to an old school hacker. Probably the best deifniton I have seen would be a person who is inquisitive. They like to learn how things work. They enjoy testing things and trying new things. They have a hunger for knowledge. They don't always use that knowledge legally, but that isn't important. The important part is that they want to know as much as they can.

    souleman, I agree... It is one who is on a quest for knowledge.

    Some say that knowledge is power... if that were true I'd be in search of a nuclear generator.

    We are talking about the same thing
    Souleman:
    The important part is that they want to know as much as they can.
    My opinion:
    hacker: someone with lots of practical and theoretical computer skills. He would only force into another system when testing his / here skills or when learning about other systems. A hacker does not (ethical implication) intentionally damage another system.

    So, they want to learn that's right

    I picked this up reading somewhere;

    Again I have to agree with you on that! (Real) hacking is the process of learning

    Learning the process of hacking is not possible - learning how to learn, who ever heard of that!?

    i think we need a new word, the old one no longer works.

    too many definitions = undefined
    Bukhari:V3B48N826 “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”
