The Conscience of a Hacker

The Conscience of a Hacker is an awesome poem. I identified heavily with this when I first read it, in a copy of Phrack that I downloaded from a long-distance BBS back when I was 15 and called myself -=<BiG bROtHer>=- ;)

I just thought of it again this morning, I'm surprised I haven't dug it up more recently. I loved the reference to it in Hackers:

“You think that's cool?”
“Yeah, it's cool.”
“It's not cool. It's commy bullshit man.”

Well, I think it's cool too.
