Seconded. The term "hacker" originally referred to one who would
"hack" at [working] code to make it better, faster, cleaner, more fun,
etc. The term has been badly misused in recent years, and for some has
taken on a new meaning. Given the true meaning of the term, most of
the people on this list could be called "hacker".
