Title: The hacker ethic and the spirit of the information age
Author: Pekka Himanen
I just read this book.
It is a nice read and has quit a few resources for further investigation.Here, the word hacker doesn't refer to computer criminals but what the word originally meant: a person who wants to do something that one is passionate about, something in which one can realize oneself creatively, and something in which one can build things for the good of all. The hacker ethic is a new work ethic questioning the old Protestant ethic.
