What is the most engaging story about hackers/hacking?
The first thing that comes to mind is Kevin Mitnick’s Ghost in the Wires. I binge-listened to the book on audio in a few days. It is the most engaging story, about hacking or otherwise, that I’ve ever read. The summary from Amazon does the book more justice than I could:
Mr. Robot Recap: The Twist in Episode 7 Is Big But a Bit Trying
Fans of Mr. Robot, a TV show about hackers who on June 9, 2015 successfully collapse a global economic system that looks and functions very much like ourChimerical one, might want to watch Werner Herzog's new documentary Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World. It opens tomorrow, concerns the current and possibly highest stage of human civilization, which is connected and defined by the technologies of the internet, and has an interview with Kevin Mitnick, the “world's most famous hacker.” What you will see in this interview with the legendary hacker are a lot of similarities with Mr. Robot's central character, the hacker and founder of fsociety Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek).
