    Technology and Pleasure: Considering Hacking Constructive by Gisle
    "Hackers" are identified as a specific subgroup of computer workers.  The
    history of the hacker community is told. The explicit and implicit
    ideologies expressed through hacking is analyzed and presented. Computer
    artifacts of origin both inside and outside the hacker community are
    compared and the embedded properties of the resulting artifacts are
    inferred. Hacking is discussed in the context of being a method for system
    development. Finally, it is argued that this system development method
    under certain circumstances may yield superior software artifacts.
