    Off one of the links you provided I managed to find this website: http://iamnop.com/webtube/ well worth a look, there are loads of cool features to explore – I thought it was a bit boring, then I did some more clicking and trying and wow!

    I once mentioned to someone who talked about hacking (in so many word) that they needed to ensure they didn’t stray onto dodgy ground, and they replied that the word hack has more connotations than just breaking something or trying to steal stuff – as you mention.

    From Wikipedia “In the computer security context, a hacker is someone who seeks and exploits weaknesses in a computer system or computer network. Hackers may be motivated by a multitude of reasons, such as profit, protest, or challenge.” – exploiting a weakness may be to change something for the better. Say Windows has a weakness which lets you get into the OS and get it to play your favourite music on startup (okay you can do that without a hack) that is a hack, but isn’t malicious.

    Great article, worth the read :-)

    I guess in some ways you can compare it to graffiti. There are some amazing graffiti artists who can create brilliant modern art. You then get a sizeable percentage of graffiti artists who simply mess up other peoples property.
