At the core of hacker culture, 10 April 2014
Author: rosebud017 from Germany

I feel part of digital culture, but not necessarily part of the strange realms of hackdom. I wanted to learn about it, and it felt a good idea to start with a documentary about the oldest hacker festival on the planet. But "Defcon: The Documentary" is not only a film about a convention, but about a culture, a way of life, about challenges in the past, and possibilities for the future. (I was especially pleased to see the debate about misogyny in tech circles.) A very rich film, full of sadness, joy, pride, and never-ending debate. Highly recommended... and it really doesn't matter if you know anything about hacker culture at all. Doubleplusgood!
