From curiosity to controversy— a captivating compilation

Since 1984, 2600 has been the voice and forum for the hacker subculture, and thousands have raised their voices in letters to the editor.

Now you can read the best of them, from the simply curious (“What does ‘2600’ mean, anyway?”) to the slightly paranoid (“For years I have been hearing voices saying they are the Secret Service telling me what to do....”), along with 2600’s responses.

You’ll discover what makes a hacker tick. You will recognize the rebel, the insatiably inquisitive, the visionary determined to push the envelope.

You may even recognize yourself within the pages of Dear Hacker.
