I remember when hackers came out in the college towns. They gave us
phone numbers and we gave them food and other simple stolen goods.
They taught us to sew pockets in our coats, learn blind spots since
cams were just coming out, and steal like kleptomaniacs all for the
cause. They claimed that it weren't stealing but informing. The cause
of bettering the system and revealing the weaknesses in security on
computers and in the real world. This is only my recollection so it
dont represent the goals of hackers then or now but it took me years
to stop theiving simple survival goods in me early 20s.
