The Hacker Ethics

1) Access to computers—and anything which might teach you something about the way the world works—should be unlimited and total. Always yield to the Hands-On Imperative!
2) All information should be free.
3) Mistrust authority — promote decentralization.
4) Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not criteria such as degrees, age, race, sex, or position.
5) You can create art and beauty on a computer.
6) Computers can change your life for the better.
