Well, I'm back.
I read Hackers, by Steven Levy recently. Though by no means complete or objective, it's a fascinating history of the early years of the computer revolution, and Levy explains what "hacker" really means (as opposed to the mass-media's "evil people who break into computers and do terrible things we don't really understand" BS) better than any other mainstream author I've read. I noticed after reading it that it's referenced in The Jargon File.
There's been a new issue of Phrack out for a while. Something I always enjoy skimming through, despite my near total lack of comprehension.
