HACKER [originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe] n.

  1. A person who enjoys learning the details of programming systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary.
  2. One who programs enthusiastically, or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming.
  3. A person capable of appreciating hack value (q.v.).
  4. A person who is good at programming quickly. Not everything a hacker produces is a hack.
  5. An expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it; example: "A SAIL hacker". (Definitions 1 to 5 are correlated, and people who fit them congregate.)
  6. A malicious or inquisitive meddler who tries to discover information by poking around. Hence "password hacker", "network hacker".
