Of course, this is not a book about the subject of hacking but about the attitude of doing so. Frankly speaking, this seems to be a book about rather old-fashioned ideas. To me the underlying philosophy looks much like communism. Idealistic workers who share everything with everyone for the purpose of overall progress. I don´t think this is ever going to happen. But it will always be a dream - for now called "hacker ethic", yesterday it was "flower power" and once upon a time it was marxism.
