Deciphering Hackers

Zero Cool. Acid Burn. Phantom Phreak. Cereal Killer. Lord Nikon. Twenty-three years after its release, the movie Hackers is still a touchstone for a generation that grew up with AOL disks in their mail, Jolt cola in their fridges, pagers on their belts, and Rollerblades on their feet. Hackers introduced us to Angelina Jolie and Matthew Lillard, brought hacking into the mainstream consciousness, and gave us the iconic line: Hack the planet. This is Deciphering Hackers.
