According to ESR's Hacker definition, I'd like to be an Hacker.

The Hacker Attitude
1. The world is full of fascinating problems waiting to be solved.
2. No problem should ever have to be solved twice.
3. Boredom and drudgery are evil.
4. Freedom is good.
5. Attitude is no substitute for competence.

Basic Hacking Skills
1. Learn how to program.
2. Get one of the open-source Unixes and learn to use and run it.
3. Learn how to use the World Wide Web and write HTML.
4. If you don't have functional English, learn it.

Status in the Hacker Culture
1. Write open-source software
2. Help test and debug open-source software
3. Publish useful information
4. Help keep the infrastructure working
5. Serve the hacker culture itself


Q: How do I tell if I am already a hacker?
A: Ask yourself the following three questions:
1- Do you speak code, fluently?
2- Do you identify with the goals and values of the hacker community?
3- Has a well-established member of the hacker community ever called you a hacker?

If you can answer yes to all three of these questions, you are already a hacker. No two alone are sufficient.

;) Mata.

Actually, question 16 should be "when you are annoyed by the following movies..." :)

One of the only movies showing a realistic hack was the Matrix afaik.

"Hackers" is a joke when it comes to computer usage, but hey, it's got Angelina Jolie in there, so we can't complain right? :)
