Lead author is Prof. Bernadette
Schell, author of Stalking, Harassment, and Murder in the Workplace:
Guidelines for Protection and Prevention, (Quorum Books,
2000). In case you are wondering, Prof. Schell and her research
team learned that real hackers
-- those of us who love to discover and create -- are psychologically
pretty normal. Duh! If your parents are terrified of hackers,
The Hacking of America is
a good book to help them understand you.
However, you've probably wondered
why some self-described hackers you encounter in IRC act like
bad little kids. And you may have wondered why a web site run by Brian Martin, whose hobby
of torturing Barbie dolls was featured in the
June 2000 Vanity Fair magazine, is so popular with self-described
hackers. If you've ever read what he says about Happy Hacker's
Carolyn Meinel, you've probably wondered what makes him tick.
Now, with The Hacking of America,
you can see what psychology researchers make of the black hat
If you are a woman hacker, or interested
in what makes women hackers tick, you can read about Susan Thunder
-- a famous member of Kevin Mitnick's gang -- and Carolyn Meinel.
note: Gulp! Busted! Just kidding, I'm not really that weird.
