Garrick West: I’m not a frequent re-reader of books I pick up for pleasure. There’s a small list of books I have read multiple times, but Steven Levy’s "Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution" was one book on the “must-re-read” list. I remembered enjoying it thoroughly as a college computer science student when I picked it up wanting to learn more about the history of computing outside the textbook pages. I planned to read it again one day, but that had been, well, ahem…let’s just say a few years ago. As I began reading again years later, I sensed something familiar, a similarity between some of the fundamentals of the hacker ethic being described and the principles of the Agile Manifesto I had been fortunate to operate under for many years.
