So, here I went along and thought I had something unique going on in my life. A unique blend of musical aptitude, computers and even martial arts.
Then I came across this FAQ by Eric Raymond and it even seems there is a name for it – “hacker”. Now, in my mind the word “hacker” has always been associated with criminal activity involving computers and/or someone who always favours shortcuts over well-designed solutions when developing software.
If a hacker is generally defined as decribed in Eric Raymond’s FAQ, I’ll just go ahead and accept my loss of uniqueness and instead take great pride in being a hacker. 🙂
