Movie: New York City Hackers - 9’43’’ (extract)
published by Eclectica DV - Wednesday 20 December 2006
In the media and the public mind hacking has become synonymous with electronic crime. Federal agencies come down hard on anyone they catch, and all of a sudden what used to be seen as intellectual playfulness has become a serious matter... This documentary looks at the "2600" community in today’s New York City, its meetings, conferences and politics, and traces the origins of the term ’hacking’ back to the model train enthusiasts at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
