Emmanuel Goldstein first became enchanted with the computer during his high school days in the late '70s. His infatuation soon got him into trouble as he discovered he could access things he shouldn't. A few years and an FBI raid later, he cofounded 2600: The Hacker Quarterly as an outlet for stories and tutorials from hackers around the world.
Since 1988, Goldstein has hosted Off the Hook, a hacker-themed radio talk show airing on WBAI FM in New York City. The seven HOPE (Hackers On Planet Earth) conferences he has organized since 1994 have drawn thousands of attendees from points around the globe. Goldstein served as technical consultant for the 1995 feature film Hackers, and has testified before Congress on the issue of hacking and where the threat actually lies.
To this day, Emmanuel Goldstein has never taken a course in computers.
