Well, I watched The Matrix and all sorts of hacker movies… 😀
But even before I did, I kind of thought if you know how to control computers you can achieve almost anything. I still think believe that, but in the meantime realised two details:
1) Most importantly it takes a bright and determined (human) mind to achieve great things and computers don’t matter that much.
2) Experiment, implement, AUTOMATE, repeat. Generally, when you work with computers (software or hardware) and follow this pattern you are doing it well. Something that many miss and I was always very interested in -besides hacking ;)- was that automation part: when you get something to do a task without your manual assistance…
