Belajar dari kata-kata untuk menjadi hacker sejati….
Menjadi hacker sejati tidak hanya dibutuhkan sebatas pengetahuan dan pengalaman diwilayah teknis. Selain kemauan dan kerjakeras seorang hacker juga harus memiliki idealisme dan ‘kebijaksanaan/bijak (wisdom).’
Dalam novel populer Wizardry Compiled tentang Hacker’s Wisdom (Kebijaksanaan Hacker) yang ditulis Rick Cook sang hacker-jurnalis dimana ia percaya bahwa hacking adalah ilmu sihir “magic is real, unless declared integer.” (Inget kan kalau Mitnick pun sering menyebut hal yang sama).
Berikut kutipan-kutipan keren dari novel tsb yang mungkin menarik dan berguna untuk ngebangun ‘jiwa hacker’ kalian:
Catatan: Dalam novel tersebut penulis lebih menyebut hacker sebagai programmer.
