i thought i might recommend a book i'm listening to currently -
"Underground: Tales of hacking, madness and obsession on the electronic

the book, by Suelette Dreyfus, with research by the then-not-so-well-known
Julian Assange, tells the history of the hacking scene when it began in the
late 80s'. although this is a documentary, it is a high-edge book. The first
episodes about the NASA worm are a fast paced, highly interesting and
informative, and the story of Par-master can easily be adapted to an action
movie. I have not finished yet, but wanted to spread the word. Important to
note that i am not affiliated with the book, writers or any aspect other
than a reader (or rather - a listener).

the book's site is
but you can get a free, synthesized-female-voice audio version at the Lotta
Linux Links site, here <http://lottalinuxlinks.com/podcast/underground.html>.
the synthetic voice is not too bad, and maybe even adds to the overall
sensation. As i said, i am having a hard time putting the ear buds out...

hope you enjoy,
