"THE HACKER MINDSET IS NOT CONFINED TO THIS SOFTWARE HACKER CULTURE. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO APPLY THE HACKER ATTITUDE TO OTHER THINGS, LIKE ELECTRONICS OR MUSIC — ACTUALLY, YOU CAN FIND IT AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF ANY SCIENCE OR ART. SOFTWARE HACKERS RECOGNIZE THESE KINDRED SPIRITS ELSEWHERE AND MAY CALL THEM ‘HACKERS’ TOO — AND SOME CLAIM THAT THE HACKER NATURE IS REALLY INDEPENDENT OF THE PARTICULAR MEDIUM THE HACKER WORKS IN".
