Re: [Full-disclosure] Hacker Space Fest 2009 CFP: Call For Paper



Valdis,
Mr. Mailinglist's stated intention was ruin, as clearly can been seen
from the e-mail.
Ruiners haven't forgotten... The old definition of 'hacker' is just
archaic. Sort of like you're trying to bring back 'gay means happy.'
I bet you love the HOPE kool aid.

Anyways an open 'underground' hackerspace has to be the worst idea
ever. Why put a bunch of government ruiners in the same
('surveil-able') physical location? The biggest asset to 'the
resistance' is the fact that it's near impossible for LE to bust
anyone, put them all in a room conspiring and then you're...

The basic idea is to attract enough wannabies and posers so that the real
miscreants can fly under the radar.

There's also apparently a large segment of the "ruiners" who have forgotten
what the *original* meaning of the word "hacker" was, and are confused when
the /tmp/lab crew is using the old meaning.
