    Are You a Hacker?
    by ReDragon

    Take a little quiz for me today. Tell me if you fit this
    description. You got your net account several months ago. You have been
    surfing the net, and you laugh at those media reports of the information
    superhighway. You have a red box, you don't have to pay for phone calls.
    You have crackerjack, and you have run it on the password file at a unix
    you got an account on. Everyone at your school is impressed by your computer
    knowledge, you are the one the teachers ask for help. Does this sound
    like you? You are not a hacker.
    There are thousands of you out there. You buy 2600 and you
    ask questions. You read phrack and you ask questions. You join
    #hack and you ask questions. You ask all of these questions, and you
    ask what is wrong with that? After all, to be a hacker is to question
    things, is it not? But, you do not want knowledge. You want answers.
    You do not want to learn how things work. You want answers. You do not
    want to explore. All you want to know is the answer to your damn
    questions. You are not a hacker.
    Hacking is not about answers. Hacking is about the path you
    take to find the answers. If you want help, don't ask for answers,
    ask for a pointer to the path you need to take to find out those answers
    for yourself. Because it is not the people with the answers that are
    the hackers, it is the people that are travelling along the path.

    maybe i'm just being sanctimonious, but if you have to ask the question "am i a hacker," then you have already failed. the "hacker culture" is overrated and i wish people would stop trying to aggrandize the mythical noble hacker. hackers are just people, and they don't need to be defined by some stupid person's pigeon-holed views. just my opinion.

    i agree with moby duck. the whole hacker thing today is blown soooo out of proportion and if you were one good for you but you dont have to go around publicizing it. like you dont have to go around saying "LOOK AT ME IM COOL BECAUSE IM A HACkER!!" thats not what its about. its really about the love for the technology.

    If computer and computer science is a passion for you, you spend time to learn, to code or else I think you are a hacker.

    Heh heh, no joke, I have friends that trip out on some of the stuff I can do on a computer (simple stuff like using the net commands), and I think the big 'mystic' view of it comes mostly from people who don't understand much about computers. . .There always like: "Wow, how do you do this or that??", or "that's cool your a hacker". I don't claim to be a hacker, and always shrug it off w/ an explaination that what I do is very boring, and amounts to sitting in front of my computer reading for hours to find that single stupid command or series of statements that will acomplish what I am looking to do.
    Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.
