There´s a plethora of icons, signs and symbols for whatever phenomena in the digital world. Now the hacker community have gotten a new sign: The glider.
The idea is: "When you put the glider emblem on your web page, or wear it on clothing, or display it in some other way, you are visibly associating yourself with the hacker culture. This is not quite the same thing as claiming to be a hacker yourself that is a title of honor that generally has to be conferred by others rather than self-assumed. But by using this emblem, you express sympathy with our goals, our values, our way of living.".
