7 Commandments of the Personal Computer Revolution

7 Commandments of the Personal Computer Revolution:

  1. Access to Computers - and anything that might teach you something about the way the world works - should be unlimited and total.
  2. Always yield to the Hands-on Imperative.
  3. All information should be free.
  4. Mistrust authority - promote decentralization.
  5. Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race,or position.
  6. You can create art and beauty on a computer.
  7. Computers can change your life for the better.
