I was reading another fantasy book by Chris Wooding (my current favorite author) when I come across this one – Hacker Crackdown - Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier http://www.mit.edu/hacker/hacker.html. Written by Bruce Sterling author of among many others “The Difference Engine”. I warn you this book is not action filled adventure fiction and you won't find much action at all, it's just attempt to describe some events from '90 with most detailed explanation of social, political background that accompanied them. I study social science at Warsaw University and despite being very far from US in terms of both distance and culture I think that with Sterling's help I can understand what and why happened. Basically book is about nationwide operation codenamed Sundevil and both it's aftermath and events that lead to this famous series of raids, search and seizure, arrests targeted at underground net-based community. What I want to do is not review of playing book critic about something I haven’t finished reading yet but to ask about your opinion... some of you are form US another “some” is old enough to remember. So tell me your opinions, memories, thoughts related to that period and events. Or maybe you don't care, back then net was less populated and popular than now maybe present bloggers started their “adventure” with cyberspace just few years ago and don't give a crap about what happened in 90s to bunch of nerds you didn't even liked back in high school.
