    "There is no gap between phrack56 and phrack57" ...and swang his

    the audience...

    On this iteration of Phrack magazine there is no single editor.  The
    editorial duties are being carried out by a 'Phrack Staff' collective.
    At the moment we are going to remain anonymous and not publish our
    nicks or our names in the magazine.  The reason we are staying
    anonymous is to ensure that people know that we are working on Phrack
    for all the right reasons.  And also of course because privacy is
    Let's talk about privacy for a moment.
    It seems to me that lately there is no motive more attractive than
    becomming a celebrities.  Ironically, celebrities have a power that
    will grow more compelling and yet less meaningful in the years to
    come.  Why? Because becomming a celebrity will be easier to achieve.  
    The drive to increase connectivity is ultimately about the access of
    everyone to everyone and everyone to everything.  A personal home page
    on the web - self-created celebrity - is only the most primitive
    example of what lies ahead, but is an instructive example all the
    same.  Home pages are self- validation, and self-validation lies at
    the very center of the drive towards the desire to become a celebrity.
    Like precious metals, society has always valued what is scarce.  As
    privacy becomes rarer and rarer, it will assume greater and greater
    Switching subjects, there is another point that I would like to make.  
    The field of information security is vast.  It is vast because it
    concerns not just technology, but also sociology, criminology,
    economics (think of risk modeling), and many other associated
    subjects.  Even within the technology side of information security,
    there are many different areas of study - vulnerability assessment,
    intrusion detection, public key infrastructure, operating system
    security, and so on.  The point I am working towards is that the world
    does not being and end with shellcode and it certainly does not begin
    and end with exploits.
    You owe it to yourself to investigate what it is about information
    security that makes it the most interesting and challenging field of
    study within information technology today.
    It's a big world out there.  Read books.  Experiment.  Don't just do.  
    Enjoy the magazine!
