Just Breathe (Zen of hacking?)

Adrian Lamo's Web site logo

  • Forensic ICT lesson
  • Students searched for information about Adrian Lamo, the ‘homeless hacker’
  • Then we read page 3 and 4 of Marc Roger’s essay A New Hacker Taxonomy
  • Students were invited to analyse aspects of Lamo’s ‘career’ using Rogers’ roles
  • Disagreements! Arguments focussing on what the roles meant! Useful!
  • Lamo’s minimalist home page provides an example of embedded hypertext – rare these days.
  • Cynthia Fitch’s ‘Crime and Punishment in Cyberspace’ was taken away as homework
