However, in time, the term "hacker" came to mean other things. I like the definition as it describes a person who combines excellence, playfulness, cleverness and exploration in performed activities.
And I like a blog called Lifehacker. Founded in 2005 by Gina Trapani, it cover a wide range of tech related topics, as well as general life tips and tricks. The Lifehacker motto is "Tips and downloads for getting things done."
It is one of those sites that you can count on to teach you something new and entertain.
Here are some typical posts:
- How to deal with death in the Digital Age
- Find Unadvertised Job Openings with a Clever Google Search
- Your Clever Password Tricks Aren't Protecting You from Today's Hackers
