I have been lamenting this for years and smelling the "gap" for years. I've consoled myself with "Learner, Hacker, Idiot" tag in LinkedIn profile. Recently I noticed some guys who branded themselves as hackers when they're bashing MBAs in Quora. Having impressed by their "attitude", I checked their product and found nothing better than StockFox.
Some hacker chauvinistic links I'm fond of:
- The Hacker FAQ
- How to be a Programmer: A Short, Comprehensive, and Personal Summary
- Top 10 Traits of a Rockstar Software Engineer
- The Programmer Dress Code
- How To Become A Hacker bt Eric Steven Raymond
- Hacker Photos
- Geek Test: the original test from innergeek
- How to Start a Startup by Paul Graham. He says "The rulers of the technology business tend to come from technology, not business. So if you want to invest two years in something that will help you succeed in business, the evidence suggests you'd do better to learn how to hack than get an MBA."
