From my blogpost on hackers in popular culture:
Seeing "computeromancy" as an aesthetics makes the true hacking much more tame and hackers' criticism of our capitalist culture - toothless. They're dangerous because they're skilled / criminals / geniuses, not because they see more than us or raise valid points against how we use technology.
