A Geeks Guide 2Geeks Guide2 For 25 years 2600 has been a hacker’s one-stop source for essential information and an open forum to discuss the latest developments within the hacking community. Viewed as a rock star amongst followers of 2600, Emmanuel Goldstein has developed an iconic status amongst hackers both old and new.

Dear Hacker: Letters to the Editor of 2600 - £11.99Dear Hacker: Letters to the Editor of 2600, provides the reader with a rather entertaining yet insightful look at the diverse range of letters sent to the editor of the cult magazine. These letters are not limited to the world of hacking - some letters cover areas such as 9/11 conspiracies, gun control and wars. One writer even suggests there was a government conspiracy as of why he was unable to rent the 1995 movie Hackers.

This book is not limited to those with an interest in the field of hacking and can be read by anyone with a passing interest. The purpose of the book is not to provide us with the finer details of hacking. Instead Goldstein cleverly uses this book to pay homage to those who have contributed to 2600, which some call the true voice of the hacker community.

Whether you read this book and take from it the comic connotations or use it as reference for historical purposes, Dear Hacker is definitely a title Geeks Guide can recommend.
