    i got the coolest school assignment

    once a week one person in our class has to give a presentation on a subject chosen by the teacher (e.g. utilitarianism, technophobia, etc.)

    my topic is hacking

    it's a computer ethics class.

    if anyone has any links they think may be useful, please post them.

    thanks.

    Ok...
    Let's see you want ethics.

    Now are you taking this from the area, of Ethical things that should be done, things you shouldn't do.

    Let me know I got a Favorite full of all types of websites.

    Now I will say that,
    You could check.
    www.hackers.com
    www.hackerslab.com
    www.hackerthreads.com
    .astalvista.box.sk
    www.soldierx.com

    Those are just a couple Hacking sites I know of.
    There should be stuff there about the ethics.

    thanks for the links checking them out now.

    I would say someone on MiRC would also be able to help. Just remember to ask the right way. If not make sure you have a firewall... you'll need it.

    Spool.exe he would need a server to go to.

    For this question, you could try efnet, or freenode. As he said don't be an ass.

    Hum... I would also recommend that you try a search in google.
    When ever you put in Hacker or learn to Hack in google, 90% of the stuff you get is Ethics.

    maybe you could read this as an Intro

    Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"... Damn kids.

    They're all alike.

    But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him? I am a hacker, enter my world... Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me... Damn underachiever.

    They're all alike.

    I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explain for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No, Ms. Smith, I didn't show my work. I did it in my head..." Damn kid. Probably copied it.

    They're all alike.

    I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn't like me... Or feels threatened by me... Or thinks I'm a smart ass... Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here... Damn kid. All he does is play games.

    They're all alike.

    And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. "This is it... this is where I belong..." I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all... Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again.

    They're all alike...

    You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, or ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert. This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals. Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual, but you can't stop us all...

    After all, we're all alike.

    Very good point Memory.

    I don't think there is a person in Security/Computers that has not read that atleast once. **** I am going to put it on my site, it is true.

    This is probably going to spark one of those, You said Hacker debates but oh well.

    Hum...
    /me thinks before he says it.

    The true sense of the world hacker is one that enjoys learning in it's deepest sense.
    Oh yeah as a note, Cocacola don't look in the dictionary for a Definition that word is so, torn to pisses from it's actual meaning it is pointless to look it up.

    IMHO you are a hacker if you have a passion for something, anything it doesn't matter what I am tired of the you are a Hacker bacause you break into computers or know how to. That definition is played.

    Let me quit this is one of those things I rant about to much.

    Hey Memory what is the weather and everything like up there, I am going to be going home Tomorrow.
