This 25th anniversary edition of Steven Levy's classic book traces the exploits of the computer revolution's original hackers -- those brilliant and eccentric nerds from the late 1950s through the early '80s who took risks, bent the rules, and pushed the world in a radical new direction. With updated material from noteworthy hackers such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Stallman, and Steve Wozniak, Hackers is a fascinating story that begins in early computer research labs and leads to the first home computers.

Levy profiles the imaginative brainiacs who found clever and unorthodox solutions to computer engineering problems. They had a shared sense of values, known as "the hacker ethic," that still thrives today. Hackers captures a seminal period in recent history when underground activities blazed a trail for today's digital world, from MIT students finagling access to clunky computer-card machines to the DIY culture that spawned the Altair and the Apple II.

Within 6 weeks of talking online with these cryptocurrency mining and investment traders, I would have lost a total of $48,000.00 if not for the intervention of Cyber Genie. I sent several thousand dollars consecutively into the trading crypto wallet those investors created for me with hopes of high earnings that's when my staff noticed the drastic withdrawal from the company's account and asked, I confided in him, and to my shock, with proof and convincing, She showed me I am being conned. Lucky for me, before they could take out the money from the trading wallet, I contacted this "Cryptocurrency recovery team" and they helped me recover my funds. These are the contacts of the guys who assisted me, maybe they can help you if you are or have been in my shoes.
