Well written!
Today the World Wide Web is not just a network, it is like a wild world full of dangerous places and creatures (I mean hackers) that can attack you when you don't expect it. This doesn't mean that all the hackers are bad but still most of them are criminals. I decided to research on different ways to protect yourself and your repository of important data that is believed to keep everything in safe and made virtual data room comparison. Thanks to the author for such a nice post.

hackers do valuable work
This is a very negative article. Yes, there are criminal hackers ("crackers" is a better designation for these people) but for the genuine hacker is is just a game of curiosity to find out how things work. It is nearly a kind of science. Incidentally, true security like hackers since they find weaknesses in protection that need to be repaired. "Security by obscurity" is unreliable.

More fundamentally, innovation needs a free market and the free exchange of ideas. Hackers help to create and to spread ideas. Engineers complain that if their work is intended to be patented, they are no longer allowed to exchange their ideas with colleagues (unless they enter in a complicated legal hassle of non-discolsure areements that are prohibitive for all informal communication).

But may be blasphemy for people who make their job to protect intellectual property.
