Un gamin finlandais de onze ans qui s'amuse à programmer un VIC-20 sur les genoux de son grand-père; qui passe son adolescence enfermé dans sa chambre, à écrire du code; qui s'attèle un jour à la tâche d'écrire un nouveau système d'exploitation basé sur les normes POSIX après avoir découvert le livre d'Andrew Tanenbaum; qui, avec l'aide de dizaines milliers de programmeurs de tous horizons, tente d'en faire le meilleur système d'exploitation en prenant le train du mouvement du code ouvert sous licence GPL, qu'il considère le meilleur moyen d'atteindre à l'excellence dans l'innovation technologique; qui se retrouve propulsé au niveau de héros de ce mouvement: c'est ce que raconte ici Linus Torvalds, nous livrant du même coup sa vision de l'architecture des systèmes, du mouvement du logiciel libre, de la propriété intellectuelle et du sens de la vie. Des propos lucides et mesurés qui nous font presque oublier toutes les fautes de syntaxe qu'un éditeur moins consciencieux que le créateur de Linux a laissées dans la traduction. [SDM]

L'éthique hacker et l'esprit de l'ère de l'information by Pekka Himanen ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Essai philosophique sur les valeurs morales que partagent la plupart de ces mordus de l'informatique ("hackers" ou "geeks" en anglais) que l'on retrouve, principalement dans le mouvement du logiciel libre, mais également dans d'autres secteurs de la société de l'information. Comparant leur éthique à celle qui, inspirée de l'éthique protestante telle que formulée par Max Weber, domine largement dans nos sociétés industrielles, et la rapprochant de l'Académie de Platon, l'auteur analyse ses rapports au travail et à l'argent ainsi que son engagement en faveur de la liberté d'information et du respect de la vie privée. Précédé d'un court texte de Linus Torvals sur les motivations profondes de l'être humain et suivi d'un autre de Manuel Castells résumant son ouvrage ##L'ère de l'information##. [SDM]
