hackers are people too

Are they?

Of course they are. They're people, like any brand of geeks. Kind of like movie geeks, really.

Hackers Are People Too is actually a documentary produced by hackers; it premiered at this year's DefCon in Las Vegas.

As I'm not very familiar with that particular subculture, the movie appealed to the Discovery Channel in me. It was interesting... and educational... but perhaps a hazard of a movie produced by its subject is that it came off as a little self-serving. I'm thinking the goal of the film was to humanize hackers to the general public, but in all honesty, hackers would probably enjoy it more than any other group of people.

Still, it's fairly interesting, and less than an hour. If you swing that way, you can get it for $10 here.

    I already saw a movie about hackers. It was called 'Hackers.' I loved it. Haha.

    Thanks for the heads up on this doc.

    Not having that many computer skills, I don't get the high of hacking. Mostly I think hackers are pretty evil to torture the rest of us with problems
