I am not a hacker, even remotely, but do enjoy this little magazine even though some, even though many, articles I don't fully understand, though bravely try to. The reason I buy it is, frankly, because it is so well written. The responses to the Letters to Editor are sometimes a scream--very funny while also, at the same time, being polite and informative. Also, there is a refreshing, First Amendment and civil libertarian ethos to the magazine, and the enjoyment of reading people writing enthusiastically about what they love to do. The magazine seems, to use a psychological phrase, genuine.
