Hackers is amazing because it’s simultaneously an absolutely abysmal movie and a fantastic movie; I love it for the subculture aspect despite its many flaws. Sure, the villain rides a skateboard and demands to be called ‘The Plague’, but I think it actually has legitimate merit beyond just ironic viewing. It’s still fun to laugh at it, but I honestly enjoy watching it now and then. Recommend it.

@nicohman it’s his handle. His handle has subsumed his real world identity. And at the same time he holds onto his childhood. He cares for only himself, he looks out for only himself. He is the antithesis of the Hacker ethos
