What is the hacker culture?

Eric S. Raymond says in best in his F.A.Q on how to become a hacker. Here is a short overview:

The term "hacker" came from the earliest of computer enthusiasts such as the ARPAnet experiments; a title used to describe programmers and networking wizards.

It's people like these that gave us the Internet, Unix, and every other life-changing technology. Hackers are not the ones breaking into systems, stealing credit cards, and causing havoc.

The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them. - Eric S. Raymond (ESR)
