An anonymous reader writes "Following one of the best descriptions ever of a hacker I've ever seen, Pete Herzog, creator of the "security testing" (professional hacking) manual OSSTMM outlines compelling reasons why the traits of the hacker should be taught in school to make better students and better people. It starts out with "Whatever you may have heard about hackers, the truth is they do something really, really well: discover." and it covers open education, teaching kids to think for themselves, and promoting hacking as a tool for progress. And it's fun to read too!"
