A note pointing out the difference between hacking and cracking would
have been useful probably...

I tend to prefer to hightlight the fact that there are differences and
tensions among hackers about what is appropriate in hacking rather than
just draw a neat line between hacking and cracking. There are many
transgressive acts in the history and contemporary face of hacking I
would not simply place in the cracker category for example. I usually
just highlight the internal debates among hackers as a way to prevent
such responses.
