Richard Thieme: "Real Hacking Rules!"

by Tara McGoldrick Walsh
Linux Newsletter for 10/07/2002

Dear Reader,

This week we have Richard Thieme's musings on the essence of hacking. Called an "online pundit of the hacker culture" by the "L.A Times" and "extremely subtle and deep" by the "Linux Journal," Richard has written an insightful article about his favorite subject--hackers, saying it "behooves hackers of any definition to be keenly aware of the ends to which they hack."
