I was just listening to 2600 | Off The Hook on WBAI (local FM radio), which purports to be the "longest running broadcast radio show for hackers", predating the internet. They are partially responsible for my interest in C programming because of a fund drive book offer they had last year.
I don't consider myself a "hacker" in the sense of being affiliated with any groups, so I'm not trying to promote any philosophy. But it does appeal to me. Right now the host is at a hacker convention/camp in Holland, HAR 2009. These people seem to have quite a "sub-culture" going on; I was just curious if anyone at cboard had any observations, experiences, comments etc. about this.
