H2K2 (2002): "'The Conscience of a Hacker'" (Download)
Saturday, July 13, 2002: 3:00 pm (Area "A"): Probably the most famous single essay about what it's like to be a hacker is "The Conscience of a Hacker" by The Mentor, written in 1986. It's been quoted all over the place, including the movie "Hackers." It remains one of the most inspirational pieces written about the hacker community and it's survived well over time. This year, we're pleased to have The Mentor himself give a reading of it and offer additional insight.
