Appendix D. Notes

The main source of information for Hackers was over a hundred personal interviews conducted in 1982 and 1983. Besides these, I refer to a number of written sources.

Part One

Chapter 1 Some of the TMRC jargon was codified by Peter Samson in the unpublished "An Abridged Dictionary of the TMRC Language," circa 1959. This was apparently the core of a hacker dictionary, kept online at MIT for years, which eventually was expanded to The Hacker Dictionary by Gus Steele et al. (New York: Harper & Row, 1983).

Chapter 1 Samson’s poem printed in F.O.B., the TMRC newsletter, Vol. VI, No. 1 (Sept. 1960).

Chapter 1 “. . . stories abounded . . .” See Philip J. Hilts’ Scientific Temperaments: Three Lives in Contemporary Science (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1982).
