Last edit: 2021-12-23

Editor's note: The following are in no particular order, and comprise only what I consider to be useful bookmarks. It is by no means objective, exhaustive, of definitive in any way. You may find a few gems. Or not.


hacker

A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in particular. The term is often misused in a pejorative context, where "cracker" would be the correct term. See also: cracker.

Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programs. Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to do, let us concentrate rather on explaining to human beings what we want a computer to do.
