(computer science) A person who uses a computer system without a specific, constructive purpose or without proper authorization.
[originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe]

2. A person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users, who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary. RFC1392, the Internet Users' Glossary, usefully amplifies this as: A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in particular.

3. One who programs enthusiastically (even obsessively) or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming.

4. A person capable of appreciating hack value.

5. A person who is good at programming quickly.

6. An expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it; as in ‘a Unix hacker’. (Definitions 1 through 5 are correlated, and people who fit them congregate.)

7. An expert or enthusiast of any kind. One might be an astronomy hacker, for example.

8. One who enjoys the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming or circumventing limitations.

9. [deprecated] A malicious meddler who tries to discover sensitive information by poking around. Hence password hacker, network hacker. The correct term for this sense is cracker.

10. hack·er   [hak-er]  Show IPA
    1.a person or thing that hacks.
    2.Slang . a person who engages in an activity without talent or skill: weekend hackers on the golf course.
    3.Computer Slang .
      a.a computer enthusiast.
      b.a microcomputer user who attempts to gain unauthorized access to proprietary computer systems.

Hacker (computer security) or cracker, who accesses a computer system by circumventing its security system

Hacker (programmer subculture), who shares an anti-authoritarian approach to software development now associated with the free software movement

Hacker (hobbyist), who makes innovative customizations or combinations of retail electronic and computer equipment

- The term ‘hacker’ also tends to connote membership in the global community defined by the net (see the     network. For discussion of some of the basics of this culture, see the How To Become A Hacker FAQ. It also implies that the person described is seen to subscribe to some version of the hacker ethic (see hacker ethic).

- It is better to be described as a hacker by others than to describe oneself that way. Hackers consider themselves something of an elite (a meritocracy based on ability), though one to which new members are gladly welcome. There is thus a certain ego satisfaction to be had in identifying yourself as a hacker (but if you claim to be one and are not, you'll quickly be labeled bogus). See also geek, wannabee.

Me gustaria saber sus puntos de vista de acuerdo a su profecion o especialidad...

La mia es la cultura visual o (Visual Culture as an academic subject is a field of study that generally includes some combination of cultural studies, art history, critical theory, philosophy, and anthropology, by focusing on aspects of culture that rely on visual images.)

El Hacker de hoy en dia...

Sorry in english mi espanol esta medio pesimo....

A Hacker in generation We

The first memories I have of the term hacking are from the 1995 movie "Hackers" and the phrase that stuck in my mind for the rest of my life; when all the hackers in the movie got together around the world and the character 'Cereal Killer' called out to world "Hack the planet!" as he was being arrested.  Before that, if you where tech savvy you wanted to be a phreaker or a cracker and with that come the memories of the infamous 'Captain Crunch'. There is a distinct line I think that connects what we pursue with Hack Hackers and the telephone enthusiasts of the pre-internet era; that is, we are all still looking for ways to circumvent the established forms of communication and through technology achieve a fairer distribution of information and the ability to communicate.

The phreakers of yesterday would dream of speaking with foreign people they had never met across the world and a free form of communication. The hackers of the 90's where thirsty for the information hidden behind firewalls, corporations and governments they instinctively understood was directly affecting their lives and they would walk the legal tight rope of the law and at times break it to get their hands on what ever type of information they could.

In todays world information is in some ways more readily available. The spread of technology for communication has created a ideal condition for us to be the "collectors" and "interpreters" of information that we can gather from all parts of the world. The balance is tipped for now in our favor, the question is can we keep it that way and how long before this free network of communication is fragmentalised.

I believe that hackers of today are not only people that have and intense thirst for information and the ability to spread knowledge that can change our collective lives, but also they have the responsibility of developing and protecting the technology which allows us to do so.

The internet is one of the most significant means of disseminating information but the people around the world are loosing their ability to use this medium freely as corporations begin to restrict the way in which we are able to use it.

Gracias Mel,

Definitivamente creo que hay una gran diferencia entre lo que a la gente común llamaría 'hackers' y lo que para la gente de tecnología significa ser un hacker de verdad. Que se yo, culpémoslo a la tele, las películas de piratas informáticos hackeando un banco desde un iPod de segunda generación (de los de rueda), leyendas urbanas, que se yo. Lo cierto es que hasta hace pocos años, para el Juanito común, alguien que ya supiera configurar bien una cuenta de Outlook (lo cual no deja de ser un logro) ya era un hacker encubierto. En cambio, hoy en día, muchos adolescentes y pre-adolescentes pueden hacer con Google y redes sociales cosas muchísimo más poderosas e híbridas en tecnología, investigación y comunicación, de lo que antes hubiéramos imaginado.

Me parece que para funciones del título del movimiento, los dos lados de la diagonal (/) están orientados a personas que utilizan múltiples medios de conocimiento, acción, investigación y astucia para lograr un objetivo, solo que los unos lo hacen por medio de comunicación e interacción humana, y los otros por medio de su experiencia e intuición en el campo de la tecnología. Hay muchísimos campos en común para ambos bandos y aun mayores oportunidades en la suma de nuestras fuerzas. Esta sinergia indudablemente ya está entrando en acción a pura fuerza en la batalla que algunos medios de comunicación libran por subirse al vagón en movimiento de los nuevos medios (vagón que no entienden casi, pero intuyen que deben de controlar).

Me parece, en mi experiencia, que la mayoría de veces la referida sinergia es más bien algo parecido a tortura china corporativa. Es por eso que son tan valiosos estos espacios de interacción libre, voluntaria y abierta como Hacks/Hackers; permitirán a todos darnos cuenta que (hackeando una frase común): Todos somos hackers, pero no todos hackeamos las mismas cosas. :)
