I have been keeping this tightly guarded for about 6 months now and I am VERY EXCITED to announce that an article I wrote entitled “Hacking, Learning, and the Raspberry Pi” has been published by the 2600: The Hacker Quarterly. The spring was released today and it is very exciting seeing my name in print.
To me, this achievement is akin to an academic researcher being published in a journal.
2600 is an amazing periodical with a long history, large following, and amazing reach. From Wikipedia: “2600: The Hacker Quarterly is an American publication that specializes in publishing technical information on a variety of subjects including telephone switching systems, Internet protocols and services, as well as general news concerning the computer “underground” and left wing, and sometimes (but not recently), anarchist issues.”
I’ve been reading 2600 ever since I found it in a bookstore back in high school. I never thought of the word hacker, or hacking, as anything bad. It was to me just a kid being curious while using a computer. 2600 solidified that feeling for me and many people in the computer industry have felt the same way. Most of the companies I have worked for even had a subscription because the information is just that valuable.
Thanks for helping make this possible!
