The People Behind Computing - Hackers (#epochtimes)
I was interviewed a few weeks ago for The Epoch Times, which has resulted in a piece they've published called ‘The Universal Machine’ Author Describes the People Behind Computing. The interview centered on the hacker ethos and how it binds so many of the great pioneers and inventors of computing together - from Charles Babbage to Mark Zuckerberg. This basically summarizes the central theme of chapter 12 "Digital Underworld" of The Universal Machine.
