http://stallman.org/articles/on-hacking.html

After reading this, I decided I would think of myself as a hacker, and most of that basis isn't even based on my computer skills.

Do you think of yourself as a hacker? If you didn't, did reading this change your mind?

Well, before the media distorted the meaning of the term "hacker" by applying it to all kinds of computer criminals, dropping the term "cracker" in the process, I'd proudly declare myself a hacker. Now that it has become a derogatory term among the general population, I'm not so sure I'd do that anymore.

However, I'll always be a real hacker at heart Twisted Evil

That's what I meant. Ignore what the "media" says and tell us how you really feel! Smile

Incidentally, I have similar feelings about the word "vegetarian". I'm a vegetarian. A real one. The "media" decided the word meant something other than it's actual definition. I haven't had a chance to do so yet, but at some point, I will declare that I am a vegetarian, and when I'm offered cheese, I will politely point out that cheese is not vegetable matter. Hilarity will doubtless ensue. Twisted Evil

A "vegan" is someone from a star system in the Lyra constellation, thanks. Some people even pronounce it "vay-gan", which is not the correct pronunciation for this invented word, but I'll play with it anyway. Twisted Evil

I'd like more options on the poll, I consider myself an oldschool hacker, like the hackers of pre-home computer era, those who try to make devices out of whatever junk they can get their hands on.

Yes, I think I must be.
I often find myself quite obsessed with doing things simply to see if they can be done. Or to see if something else will happen.
I can't imagine a life without interest in what others would deem useless.

Well, if you read Stallman's interpretation of the word, this is exactly what he means.

I read that after posting Laughing we were on the same track it seems Smile
