Having problems sending this to you personally ...
Non-fiction: Cyberpunk: Outlaws and Hackers on the Computer Frontier by
Katie Hafner and John Markoff, ISBN 0-671-77879-X. The Hacker Crackdown:
Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier by Bruce Sterling, ISBN
0-553-08058-X. There are two new books out that may also be of interest,
but unfortunately I do not have their names ... One is by a hacker who used
someones account on the west coast to do his business and the other, is
written by the person whose account was used (he helped capture the guy).
Fiction: Neuromancer by William Gibson, ISBN 0-441-56959-5. Snow Crash by
Neal Stephenson, ISBN 0-553-56261-4. etc.

"The Hacker Homepage ... WELCOME to the Hacker Homepage. This page will
never ever be updated again (at least, not at this address) as I do not own
the account from which I am currently broadcasting (hehehehe). Today the
Hacker Homepage has been brought to you from Mclojame's account on
Achillies. Anyways, this page is basicly just here to say 'I hacked this
account, and the user and staff here are such morons that no one has
noticed.' Thank you Mr. Mclojame!"
