Phrack a Day -- Revitalizing what has been lost

I'd like to introduce a new segment we'll be doing called "Phrack a Day." Casey and I are going back to the roots of the hacking and phreaking culture and reading through every Phrack article, beginning with the first one to the most current. We'll be outlining the main points from each, provide some commentary, and show off a little history that so many have forgotten.

Eric S. Raymond once said,

"..being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer."

There's more to hacking -- it's about freedom, solving problems, and respect. With each blog post, we're going to live and embrace the spirit of hacking, hoping we pass it on to others.

The other day, pdp at GNUCITIZEN brought up the movie `Hackers <http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113243/>`_ and the e-zine, Phreedom as the reasons for getting into hacking. The technical accuracy in Hackers may be incorrect, but the culture is there, in plain sight. We'd like to join you pdp, in revitalizing what has been lost. To anyone reading, if you have any questions, comments, complaints, etc.. post 'em.
