What is a Hacker?


Source: Mitch Altman

This video is produced by The Media Show and has Mitch Altman as a guest to answer the question: What is a Hacker? From the video description, "When someone says they are a hacker, what do they mean? Are they just big computer geeks? Are they doing illegal criminal things, breaking in and stealing passwords? Mitch Altman, inventor of the TV-B-Gone, tells us hacking is about thinking differently about the world around you. Featuring the folks at the Noisebridge hackerspace in San Francisco, who show off their projects with bikes, toys, clothes, food, electricity, and even outer space! (Thanks, Noisebridge! Thoisebridge!)"
