> musicians, writers, engineers,chemists -all sort of
> people who are culturally distinct.   "All
> intellectual creators are "hackers".

> subject through the lens of creativity, invention,
> radical activism, resistance and culture jamming  in a
> society where information is the most valuable
> currency.
