What is a hacker? Unfortunately the term has taken on a negative connotation recently. Most people think of the hacker is a nefarious individual (or individuals) breaking into computer systems, stealing credit cards and/or identities. Hacker originally meant someone who was skilled in understanding technolgy, taking it apart, modifying it and making it perform in new and improved ways. What most people think of hackers are actually “crackers” in the sense they crack into systems maliciously often destroying files. Be aware that some of our most creative, innovative tech pioneers were once hackers. Such as Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Mark Zuckerberg and far too many to mention. Fear not the hacker!
