In this episode, we explore Hacker Culture in its early years. We look into the birth of hacker culture in MIT in the late 1950s, and look at the progress of the movement up until 1970. It is considered hacker culture was born when members of the Tech Model Railroad Club at MIT took an interest in programming. Those were the guys who would physically break into computer labs they didn’t have credentials for, or dumpster dive for hardware parts outside of the buildings of defense contractors in the Boston area. From the Tech Model Railroad Club to John McCarthy, L. Peter Deutsch, Bill Gosper - we explore the evolution of hacker culture through the lives and eccentricities of those driving it.For this episode, Padraig Coffey, CEO at Zartis, is joined by Antonio Reher, Tech Lead at Zartis.We hope you enjoy listening and feel free to share any feedback with us: podcast@zartis.com or www.zartis.com.
