TED Talk Ft. Keren Elazari on the Necessity of Hackers

I found this talk particularly interesting, because I talk a lot about Internet safety, securing your data, and protecting yourself from scams. While I don’t support the malicious actions of hackers, they also shouldn’t be viewed as nebulous boogiemen out to destroy your life, or at the very least, make it very inconvenient for you. For a system like the Internet to work, it must also be broken over and over again. The Net is very much like a living organism, and without people to exploit the weaknesses, it can never become stronger. What do you think?
