This was a funny week, I learnt about hacktivism and whistle-blowers, and as I read more articles and thought about the hacker ethics and I’ve come to the conclusion that I must have been a hacker in a past life or something. I don’t know what it is but all of the values and thinking around hacking just seemed to talk to me, free information and the game like thinking, it just sounds fun… I may have even gotten into an argument about Edward Snowden with someone.
It’s a shame that I have no Hacking skill at all though, or maybe it’s not. As hacking becomes more and more a thing and not just something that happens in movies like War games and the Matrix, people and governments are becoming more extreme when it comes to how they think and treat hackers.
Maybe I’ll just stick to blogging.
