Buenos Dias Mes Monkos!

I think one thing that everyone has neglected to add to this is that we're all hackers. We are people involved heavily in forwarding our culture.

I read this link a while ago, and I owe premchai21 for finding it for me. Hackerism is a gift culture. This means that we gain status through giving our stuff away. We cant quite give away our material goods online (though I've been trying), but we can provide knowledge encouragement and support.

We're all here because part of our ethos is to give. We're here because we're all hackers. Thats the glue that binds us together. On slashdot you have netizens. Here we have hackers. We want to give back. I am here because so many people have helped me out in the past. All I want is to be able to contribute something back to people.

I won't lie and say I'm not here for status. Thats the cool part about being a hacker. You gain status by giving. And, heck, I think that's what makes us so cool. If I do say so myself.

/me makes a big silly grin at his fellow monks

I'm glad to be a part of this little outfit.

ebullient,
brother dep.

in thread An interesting and poignant quote by r.joseph

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
