5.0 von 5 Sternen Required reading for ANY computer user under 35
I found this book by accident in the public library some years ago, misplaced it and NEVER got to finish it. I've spent the last few years looking for it again. I was DELIGHTED to find it in re-print on Amazon.com so I could finish those last two chapters!

2.0 von 5 Sternen so so
A nice overview of the history of software development, but it overglamorizes drones in the software industry and has disapointingly little technical information. It is overly pedantic in its glamorization of the so-called hacker ethic. At least Levy discusses the ethic in its historical context (where it belongs) rather than trying to pretend it applys in todays...

I found this book by accident in the public library some years ago, misplaced it and NEVER got to finish it. I've spent the last few years looking for it again. I was DELIGHTED to find it in re-print on Amazon.com so I could finish those last two chapters!
For those of us who remember the good ole' days of computers this is a fun walk down memory lane. For younger computer users...it's a blueprint for how we got here...what we believed then (and still DO to a degree) about information. Meet the guys who wrote the rules...meet the gamers and the lamers, the phreakers and the information junkies of the 20th century.You will be amazed at how humble the revolution's beginnings really were...and how easily we were amused. Yeah, it's a well used phrase but this is a FUN read...for computer users of ANY age.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An impeccable classic!, 26. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Let's see, where to begin... I have recommended this book to many people, even those not heavily involved with computers, simply because it is such a wonderful read. In a nutshell, I learned about computer history in a very enjoyable way--through the eyes of those who lived and breathed it. This book is a series of stories, beutifully narrated and colorfully depicted.
I loved the part about Bill Gates! Read this and you will understand much about the "genius" behind the man, and the abrasion once-upon-a-time created between him and the rest of the world. (Much of the Microsoft--Gates--backlash today is a mere extension of what occurred back then, at the hacker meetings, when Gates was only 19 yrs. old).
Likewise, much of the substance of what is now known as "open-source" is also an extension of how things were in the beginning of computers. Call it an extension, call it a revival, but the "hacker ethic" (as described in the book) is, in my opinion, the true seed of what has become the biggest phenomenom (the open-source movement) in the software industry today.
This book should be a recommended reading for computer science and MIS students in all responsible minded universities and colleges. The ideas expressed in this book are not about computers, not about machines. They are about people--their feelings, dreams, motivations, AND MORALS.
And it is about a vision. A vision that applies to one's work--whether in computers or not--to help others, and contribute one's part to make the world a better place for the next person.
All those fuzzy things aside, this book is impeccable in its style and content. My regards to the authors, editors, publishers, and interviewees of this book. Hands down, it is one of the best books I have ever read. --Daniel

5.0 von 5 Sternen Looking into a world you thought you knew, 15. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Hackers is a watershed work... its ability to explain technical concepts is suitable for almost anyone, but its explanation of the human concept behind the early days of the computing industry -- WHY hackers were, not just WHAT they were -- is unparalleled except possibly in The Hacker Crackdown by Bruce Sterling. You might have thought you "knew" that the personal computer came from IBM, which it didn't, or from Apple, which it didn't. You might have thought even the term "hacker" meant a malicious attacker and destroyer of complex systems, when the opposite was and is true. No matter how much time you've spent in the industry, whether you're in hardware, software or management, this book will show you how much of what you thought you knew is wrong or incomplete. The players are three-dimensional, the strands linking the storylines are bright and strong, the tone isn't moralistic, and it shows clearly how not only the Hacker Ethic began and evolved, but gives us insight as to why it's still alive, well, relevant and NEEDED in an era of know-nothing suits, IPO-driven greed, and mindless hype. Buy it. Buy two. Buy three. Give them to your friends.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein wichtiges Stück IT-Geschichte, 6. Juli 2011
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution - 25th Anniversary Edition (Taschenbuch)
Die Geschichte der Hacker war und ist immer schon ein faszinierendes Erlebnis, egal ob in Buchform oder in einem Film. Dabei finde ich die alten Zeiten bei Weitem aufregender als die heutige Zeit. Hackers ' Heros ot the computer revolution erzählt von den Anfängern der Hacker, wie alles begann und damit war es für mich eine Pflichtlektüre wie schon andere Bücher zuvor.
Dieses Buch erzählt die Geschichte der Hacker, der Evolution der Hacker und was sie schufen uns bewegten. Ohne ihren Einsatz, ihrem Interesse und ihrem Ehrgeiz sich mit der Technik zu befassen, wäre das heutige Computerzeitalter bei weiten nicht so fortgeschritten. Sie sind die Pioniere der IT-Welt wie sie sich uns heute präsentiert. Da die Zeit der IT noch so jung ist, sind viele Personen natürlich heute noch tätig, wie z.B. Richard Stallman. Ich kann nur jedem Computer begeisterten Empfehlen sich dieses Stück Geschichte in der Neuauflage, wie zarte Schokolade auf der Zunge zergehen lassen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent reading, well written, 6. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Levy has taken a subject that could be extremely boring and made it very interesting. I found myself so absorbed in this story the other night that I ended up reading late into the night.
I appreciated that he devoted equal time to the time frames outlining each section. Often, with historical writings (which this really is) a large proportion of time is devoted to the current state, but Levy kept the story balanced and coherent. Levy introduced me to characters in the 50's and 60's that I had never heard of, who were truly brilliant people. A follow up would be greatly appreciated, that would take us into the 90's and outline how hacking has changed.
Hats off to Levy. I will be looking at more of his writings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-read for anyone with even basic computing knowledge, 3. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This is easily the best book ever written for non-nerds (like me) to get an insight into what the early days of the computer revolution were like. Levy captures perfectly the awe of people exposed to new technology,and the crusading spirit of the first hackers.He manages to strike a great balance between technical information and interesting snippets on those zany hackers. This is also the first book I read that discusses the start of the computer game industry.All in all,a fantastic book that propagates the Hacker Ethic like a new religion- I'm a believer!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is incredible, funny and informative., 3. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I bought this book used, for a quarter, in bad condition, from a bookstore in Fairbanks, Alaska and it changed my life. It is so fulfilling to finally KNOW where it all came from, where the foundation of modern computing technology was formed, and to get a glimpse into the background of the people and places that are such an integral but often forgotten part of our modern society's history. I finally understand who I am, and that there are others out there like me. I don't feel so bad anymore knowing that being a nerd is ok. Thank you Mr. Levy, thank you!

4.0 von 5 Sternen One of the classic computer industry histories, 7. Oktober 1999
Von 
Gordon Haff (Lancaster, MA USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
I agree with the many other reviewers about the virtues of this book. It covers the evolution of the computer out of the glass room perhaps the best of any book out there. The book's strong narrative structure is also its only real flaw as it forces the history of the computer into a neat east/west dicotomy capped off by an idealized Richard Stallman portrayed as the last hacker. Still, a great book that is one of the "must reads" for anyone interested in how the computer industry grew and developed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thoroughly engaging book; should be re-read every year, 29. Juni 1999
Von 
tex@delamancha.org (Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
I first read this book in the late 1980s, as a teenaged computer enthusiast, and I was incredibly inspired by the contents. In the mid-1990s, I bought a copy of the trade paperback and I now regularly re-read the stories of the people who share my love of computing.
I don't think that you can really understand the motivation of folks like Richard Stallman and the GNU project without reading this book.
I would like to see an updated version of this book that covered the period from 1982-2000.
