Hackers of the World Unite

In my tower, a bare room with a PC and a router, maybe a few other electronic gadgets, setting right the wrongs of the world. maybe taking 1% off the top for me.

These thoughts came to mind while reading through that very excellent crime trilogy by Stieg Larsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with fire, The Girl who kicked the Hornet's nest). The hero -or rather the protagonist - is the investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist. The anti-hero, (still one of the good guys, you understand) is the socially inept, morose, abused, young woman Lisbeth Salander. Now Lisbeth has one remarkable talent - she is a hacker supreme. She does not do it generally hack for her own gain - she does it to get back at people who have harmed her, or her friends. Then she is a woman possessed and will stop at nothing to win.

My 100 Books (Madstone's List)

Posted by Kitten in books

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read. 2) Italicize those you started but did not finish. 3) Underline the books you LOVE. 4) Highlight the ones you still want to read but just have not had a chance yet! (I added this category as there are a number of books on this list that tickle my fancy!)
5) Reprint this list in your own blog so we can try and track down these people who’ve read 6 or less and force books upon them."
