Hacker Mentality

As you prepare your mind, body, and spirit for 2018, consider this: In the 1880s, American homesteaders used barbed wire fences to carry telephone signals, because telephone companies didn’t think it was cost effective to run cable in rural areas.

Those homesteaders personified the hacker mentality. They identified a problem, found a solution, and then implemented it at the community level.

Today phones are a given, but we still like to test our limits. An ISP in the UK recently demonstrated that it could transmit ADSL signals over wet string! Why? Well, why not?

Step into the new year with your own hacker mentality. When you see a loose thread, pull on it and find out where it takes you!
