5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading in the information age, 3 Nov 2010
This review is from: 2600 Magazine: The Hacker Quarterly - Autumn 2010 (Kindle Edition)
2600 is a great source of information and opinion, whether or not you consider yourself to be a hacker.

The magazine takes an in-depth look at the information and communications technology which has become an integral part of our lives. While some articles require a level of technical expertise (it'll help if you know your way around a Linux distribution and a programming language or two), much of the information is accessible to anyone with reasonable computing proficiency.

Where 2600 really excels is in its examination of the effects of technology on society. Issues including Wikileaks, intellectual property law, privacy, data protection and media manipulation are frequent themes, and the magazine provides a platform for a range of views which sometimes aren't heard in the mainstream media.
