Bringing the Original Hacker Culture Back

What is a Hacker? Some shady criminal that steals your credit cards and other details or somehow makes off with millions from a bank?

That is what you might believe however… that really isn’t what true Original Hackers were or are really about.

I want to bring back the original hacker culture, as described on Wikipedia:

Hacker culture

Hacker culture, an idea derived from a community of enthusiast computer programmers and systems designers, in the 1960s around the Massachusetts Institute of Technology‘s (MIT’s) Tech Model Railroad Club (TMRC)[1] and MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.[2] The hobbyist home computing community, focusing on hardware in the late 1970s (e.g. the Homebrew Computer Club)[3] and on software (video games,[4] software cracking, the demoscene) in the 1980s/1990s. Later, this would go on to encompass many new definitions such as art, and Life hacking.

Richard Stallman explains about hackers who program:

What they had in common was mainly love of excellence and programming. They wanted to make their programs that they used be as good as they could. They also wanted to make them do neat things. They wanted to be able to do something in a more exciting way than anyone believed possible and show “Look how wonderful this is. I bet you didn’t believe this could be done.”[6]
