From time to time I surf some hacker/virus coder sites to check on the “mood” of those people. From current articles and incidents one could draw the conclusion that the end was near.
A desperate call to the community not to give up and not to turn their backs on virus coding: http://vx.netlux.org/29a/29a-6/29a-6.111
Yet another “community” (see next link) ceased to exist: http://www.rrlf.de.vu/
A virus coder broods about the relative success – and the lack thereof – of various types of collaborations: http://spth.host.sk/sowesh.txt That sounds so infantile, troubled, and sad. Like the lonely hackers confined to their computers in dark rooms finally realized that there’s a real world out there. A world with real people, that form close-to-real communities based on trust and respect united through common values.
