Anarchy: Lockpicking

One of the more interesting examples presented about the "Hacker Ethic" is

that of not allowing locked doors to get in the way of using new

technology or discovering new things. The legend holds that at MIT, if

a professor added a lock to his office to stop hackers from using a

computer, they would crawl into the ceiling tiles and leave a note on

the chair saying "Please don't lock your door." This eventually progressed

to the general tunnel exploring that MIT provided, and how generations

of students would pass along the knowledge they had recieved, to those

who, in their view, were ready to recieve it. Of course, this whole idea

got blown out when the MIT Guide to Lockpicking became generally

available.

So Lockpicking has this rather odd Symbiosis with computers in some

circles, and you can find examples of that below.

A lot of these files are doubled; I found it very hard, looking at two

similar but differently mangled files, which one should be the "canonical"

one. So, I often include both.
