I’ve finally completed Hackers by Steven Levy, it goes through the history of hackers.

Light, Camera, Laptop.

And not hackers in the sense that we know them today.

But in the sense of tinkerers, explorers of knowledge, creators of shortcuts (or hacks).

They lived by the premise that information wants to be free… a fundamental ethos of the internet.  Information sharing, makes us all smarter and that’s the ultimate aim of the hacker.

It’s funny, in this, I see a lot of digital marketing culture, transparency of information, results and you can see what you’re competitors are up to.  It’s the ultimate hackers marketplace.

Well worth a read.
