Quoi de mieux que la société au complet comme système à “hacker”?

Un article très inspirant (en anglais) qui explique bien pourquoi un jour je ferais de la politique (comme si je n’en faisais pas déjà, mais disons “professionellement”).

Information Diet | Why Developers Should Run for Congress.

Third, great developers are systems fixers and systems hackers. There is no system more ripe for elegant process hacks than the United States House of Representatives. Put a developer in Congress, and they’ll start exposing data on their own. They’ll build systems to make it so they can hear from their constituents better. Just as Ted Kennedy had his staff make the first Congressional website, a developer in Congress will seek to use new technology to make their job easier. That’s what hackers do.

PS. “Hacker” comme dans le sens de “trouver une solution créative et ingénieuse”, pas comme “pirater”. Voir la définition de Wikipédia.
