can someone recommend me books about nerds, geeks and hackers? I have already read the obligatory Hackers by Steve Levy a while ago and absolutely loved it. I'm mostly interested in MIT, GNU and game hackers - but I'll gladly read about silicon, Unix, ARPANET, Homebrew Computer Club, BSD or Linux hackers; just about anything really.


edit: I have also read the jargon file. just for the record. and I'm planning to order Free as in Freedom.

Eric Raymond has written a bunch of classic hacker literature: http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/
