New York Times Discovers Hacktivists
from the oh,-look-at-that dept
The NY Times has devoted a feature article to hacktivists. It talks about how (mostly) young computer coders of today are taking political stands in a way that makes sense to them – through coding. It focuses (not surprisingly) on Hacktivismo. The article also makes sure to talk almost entirely about “constructive” political hacking, creating programs to circumvent censorship and such, rather than destructive hacking that takes down servers or vandalizes websites.
