>what does everyone thing of anarcho hackers?
I think that the original hacker ethos has always been anarchistic – a combination of of individual freedom, opposition to authority and some sense of social justice – the belief that your individual direct action can make a difference and make the world a better place. Even with the straight criminal hacking it's basically like a pure egoism, a rejection of all other authority.
We need to see more of that imo
I fux with Hispagatos but that's a pretty small community, I'm not sure if there are hacktivist crews like there used to, at least I'm nowhere near that, but I hope I'm wrong there.
We just have a few years until Jeremy Hammond gets released, that guys a fuckin hero in my opinion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Hammond
>what are some hacking groups that you like or like reading about.
Love reading about the golden age of the bulletin boards– late 80s to mid 90s – it seemed like it was so easy to get into it back then, and then the "Anonymous" era late 2000's early 2010's, but i just missed that period in terms of knowing how to code. The really early days are interesting to like 60s and 70s – as long as there have been computers there have been hackers.
These days it's different, on the one hand it's easier to get into coding, or learn how to "pentest" but it's so fucking corporate its' disgusting – I feel the outlaw spirit of hacking has really suffered.
The state has a true pronged strategy of dealing with hackers – either take this absurd amount of money or go to prison for 10-20 years.
