1. Access to computers should be unlimited and total.

2. All information should be free.

3. Mistrust authority – promote decentralization.

4. Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not their degree, age, race, or position.

5. You can create art and beauty on a computer.

6. Computers can change your life for the better.

Probably an easy problem for expert programmers:

One last thing -- I think Go does a better job than Java at the whole run anywhere thing. I think Sun completely mismanaged Java.

There are more "famous" people on Tw*tter, but the experience here is so much lighter and faster and more enjoyable.

I like OSes, compilers, etc...

And making stupid comments about other peoples toots.

For the sake of completeness, I hate anything I can't recompile.
