Inside Happy Hacker, May 3, 1999 Our thanks to Antionline.com for providing an email list server to manage our mailings. It isn't easy running an email list when some of the world's most notorious hackers are trying to shut us down. Hurray for Antionline founder John Vranesevich and Antionline and Happy Hacker Wargame staffer Corey Gallatin for figuring our how to keep an email list server running under conditions of brutal, incessant attack. They are real heroes in our battle against those computer criminals (AKA "hacktivists") who believe they have the right to censor the Internet. http://www.sciam.com/1999/0199issue/0199infocus.html THE NET EFFECT John Vranesevich, founder of AntiOnline, a Web site that tracks hacker activities, predicts that the number of such electronic exploits will escalate in the future as the first generation of young hackers matures. "These hackers are becoming politically minded," Vranesevich says. "They are starting to vote, and they are starting to take a look at the world around them. Now they are using the skills they've honed to make their opinion heard."
