Popular Science has an article that takes a detailed look into history of Chinas hacker attacks on the US. Hackers are to Chinese kids as athletes are to American kids. Pretty crazy stuff.
Hackers are pervasive, their imprint inescapable. There are hacker magazines, hacker clubs and hacker online serials. A 2005 Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences survey equates hackers and rock stars, with nearly 43 percent of elementary-school students saying they "adore" China's hackers. One third say they want to be one.
