Ever wondered how the history of hacking culture started? Needless to say, the ethos that ‘nothing should be off limits’ has been around for years, so understanding the progression is certainly an interesting topic.
Roof and tunnel hacking in 1957 was a time for simply exploring off-limit areas on the MIT campus, but this was just the start. Advancements in technology can only mean one thing: there are more systems to hack! In 1971, early forms of ‘spoofing’ was discovered when Joe Engressia whistled down a phone in a very specific tone and was granted free long distance calls. Nice find, eh?
