Recently, while prowling a Berkeley "underground comix" store in search of Japenese comics books, I came across a journal called "2600." It was thirty or forty pages, published regularly, of and by hackers. Even to this staunch defender of the first amendment it was alarming.

All the authors use psuedonyms like "Count Zero" or "Captain Midnight." One article summarized confidential AT&T memos about detecting computer break-ins. One typical article showed the reader how to place long distance calls from a certain type of payphone and have the call charged to the business operating the phone. Another (apparently regular) feature provided a complete C code listing of a computer virus. All you have to do is type it into a compiler and type "Run."

What do you think? Should such a publication be censored? COULD it be censored?
