Surfin': Hamming on the Edge

This week, the denizens of the Surfin' visit blogs intended for ham radio hackers and makers.


  1. I had a fairly intense email exchange with Bill Pasternak WA6ITF of AR Newslone several years ago after an ARN report mentioned hackers. He wasn't interested in making any distinction between real hacking like we do on electronics or a car engine, and malicious hacking. I'm glad to see someone who can make that distinction.

  2. Darin - It always bothered me that years ago, the news media hijacked the term "hacker" and redefined it to refer to criminal activity. I have always ignored their hijacking of that term and continued to use it according to its original meaning.
