Today, 35 years ago, the Chaos Computer Club was founded in Berlin. Back in these days, Hackers were still a sub-culture which were looked very negatively upon and were feared by people through all society.
Nowadays Hackers and the formed culture around them are irreplaceable for their expertise in IT-Security, data privacy, digital foresight and many other topics in these domains.
I guess, a good way to get to know the way of Hackers or CCC is either to tag along for an event of ours, or watch this short report on the CCC in Germany an its history.
Nonetheless, never forget to Hack on!
