frosted glass so the reader can peer into that hazy world. `Underground’ belongs on the Net, in their ephemeral landscape.

The critics have been good to `Underground’, for which I am very grateful. But the best praise came from two of the hackers detailed in the book. Surprising praise, because while the text is free of the narrative moralising that plague other works, the selection of material is often very personal and evokes mixed sympathies. One of the hackers, Anthrax dropped by my office to say `Hi’. Out of the blue, he said with a note of amazement, `When I read those chapters, it was so real, as if you had been right there inside my head’. Not long after Par, half a world away, and with a real tone of bewildered incredulity in his voice made exactly the same observation. For a writer, it just doesn’t get any better than that.

By releasing this book for free on the Net, I’m hoping more people will not only enjoy the story of how the international computer underground rose to power, but also make

; web, ou encore WWW ou W3, le World Wide Web est conçu par Tim Berners-Lee en 1989 au CERN (Laboratoire européen pour la physique des particules) à Genève. Mis au point en 1990, le web devient opérationnel en 1991. Il révolutionne la consultation de l’internet en permettant la publication de documents utilisant le système hypertexte, à savoir un ensemble de liens hypertextes reliant les documents textuels et visuels entre eux au moyen d’un simple clic de souris. Désormais interactive, l’information devient beaucoup plus attractive.

Le web est très postérieur à l’internet, réseau informatique global créé en 1974 et connectant gouvernements, sociétés, universités, etc., depuis 1983. Même si, improprement, on les considère souvent comme synonymes, le web n’est qu’un des secteurs de l’internet, qui englobe de nombreux autres services: courrier électronique, foru

asingly set up to give absentee operators control over the people actually using the computer system.

The SPA, which actually stands for Software Publisher’s Association, is not today an official police force. Unofficially, it acts like one. It invites people to inform on their coworkers and friends; like the Clinton Administration, it advocates a policy of collective responsibility whereby computer owners must actively enforce copyright or be punished.

The SPA is currently threatening small Internet service providers, demanding they permit the SPA to monitor all users. Most ISPs surrender when threatened, because they cannot afford to fight back in court. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 1 Oct 96, D3.) At least one ISP, Community ConneXion in Oakland CA, refused the demand and was actually sued. The SPA is said to have dropped this suit recently, but they are sure to continue the campaign in various other ways.

The university security policies described above are not imaginary. For example, a

Remote Access to Files (FTP)

FTP or File Transfer Protocol is what to use to retrieve a text file, software, or other item from a remote host. Normal practice is to ftp to the host you want and login as “anonymous”. Some sites use the password “guest” while others require that you put in your network address as the password. Some popular ftp sites follow:

2.1. Principles for Developing Accessible Applications

Developers need to consider the following needs of disabled users when developing an accessible application:

* Choice of input methods. Support should be available for various types of input, such as, keyboard, mouse and adaptive technologies. Pay close attention to keyboard navigation. * Choice of output methods. Support should be available for various types of output, such as, visual display, audio, and print. The main focus is that text labels are provided for all user interface elements and objects, graphics, and icons. * Consistency and flexibil

The Jargon File by Eric S. Raymond

This document is a collection of slang terms used by various subcultures of computer hackers. Though some technical material is included for background and flavor, it is not a technical dictionary; what we describe here is the language hackers use among themselves for fun, social communication, and technical debate.

ele-1983, but external conditions caused the `temporary’ freeze to become permanent.

The AI Lab culture had been hit hard in the late 1970s by funding cuts and the resulting administrative decision to use vendor-supported hardware and software instead of homebrew whenever possible. At MIT, most AI work had turned to dedicated LISP Machines. At the same time, the commercialization of AI technology lured some of the AI Lab’s best and brightest away to startups along the Route 128 strip in Massachusetts and out West in Silicon Valley. The startups built LISP machines for MIT; the central MIT-AI computer became a [45]TWENEX system rather than a host for the AI hackers’ beloved [46]ITS.

The Stanford AI Lab had effectively ceased to exist by 1980, although the SAIL computer continued as a Computer Science Department resource until 1991. Stanford became a major [47]TWENEX site, at one point operating more than a dozen TOPS-20 systems; but by the mid-1980s most of the interesting software work was being
