What Hackers Want

December 23, 2004

Paul Graham’s presentation on Great Hackers, recorded at the Open Source Convention (OSCON) 2004 in Portland, Oregon. (available as text, mp3 download, mp3 stream, etc)

Paul answers the questions, what motivates great hackers? What do they need to do their jobs? How do you recognize them? How do you get them to come and work for you? And how can you become one?

Interesting stuff even if you’re not a techie, worth a listen if you’re not familiar with Paul Graham or necessarily agree with him.
