Product Description

Product Description

Volume 1 of The Hacker Digest takes you back to the very beginning of 2600 Magazine. In those first days back in 1984, the publication sought to find a footing, both in the publishing and hacking worlds. It didn't take too long. The first letters to the editor came in almost immediately. Articles ranged from the military computer network to the breakup of the Bell System. It was a fascinating time to start putting out a journal on technology because the revolution was just about to begin. The format at the time was that of a monthly newsletter: three sheets of paper with loose-leaf holes punched in them for the convenience of readers. Here, it's reformatted into an actual book, complete with explanations of the covers and various other features. Every character has been proofread (typos have been preserved) and many of the articles have stood the test of time and are quite applicable today. Most every telephone number printed, however, has likely changed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have 7 May 2012

I purchased it few weeks ago and just finished reading. It's conglomerate of various issues of Hacker's digest published in 80's and 90's. I enjoyed reading to see, how phreakers/hackers were smart enough to break or exploit security holes. They were always a step ahead of the technocrats. This book is strongly recommended to those who have interest to know about hacking and security breaches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 17 April 2012

This is a fascinating look at hacker culture right at the start of the Internet. I'm about 20% of the way through and really enjoying reading about phone phreaking and the first hacking of arpanet (which eventually became the Internet).

The digitisation has been very well done. If hacking culture history interests you, you will enjoy this.

This eBook combines the first year of 2600 (back when it was more a newsletter than a magazine). Obviously the technical stuff is 99% outdated, but this is a good read for a historical perspective on hacker culture.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great pub for 2600 readers 6 September 2013

For anyone that's been curious about the first couple of years in 2600's publishing history, this is the way to go! Inexpensive, small download, loaded with hacking history (some of which is still relevant today)!
