Chief Software Scientist

I'm tempted to say that this is a glorified term for ``head hacker'', but some people might not approve. ``Hacker,'' in any case, has a long and honorable history (meaning, roughly, ``computer expert and enthusiast'') in spite of recent attempts by the press to make it mean ``one who attempts to break into or abuse computer systems,'' a meaning which more properly applies to ``cracker.''

Sr. Computer Scientist

is a glorified term for ``middle-aged hacker''. I used to be one.

Real hackers use an AXE!
