I don’t look up to “hackers”

August 30th, 2008 · No Comments

I really don’t know why a lot of the tech community and others look up to “hackers”.

I had to write this due to the recent report that the MySpace cofounder, Tom Anderson, was arrested in the 80’s for hacking into a Chase Manhatten Computer system. There is nothing impressive about this at all. Breaking into computer systems in the 80’s was not very difficult whatsoever.

I would not hire a so called “hacker” as an expert on anything, just like I wouldn’t hire a serial killer if I was in law enforcement and wanted to know how a serial killer thinks etc. etc. I don’t see OJ Simpson consulting himself out to every police force around the world.

Some blog posts about this Anderson loser:
