Wired: "
The conventional wisdom on hacking goes something like this: Hackers are geniuses gone over to the dark side. They're skilled, but they lack
self-restraint.

Plus, they're socially inept. They don't have a very good time of it with the opposite sex. And then there's their power to bring down the world's
computer systems through a few mystical keystrokes -- a power which certainly does not endear them to the analog masses."
