Description: Every culture has its beginning somewhere, Computer hacking is no exception. The History of Hacking video series is a 5 part documentary which runs down memory lane and presents important figures, facts and personalities of the Hacking culture. In History of Hacking Part 1, we will look at Phone Phreaking and John Draper a.k.a Captain Crunch and try and understand the string of events which molded the Phone Phreaking culture. Those of you who have not heard of John, he is the guy who figured out that the whistle in the Captain Crunch serials box, had the same tone as AT&T's long distance calling telephony systems. Thus using this whistle it was possible for Phone Phreakers to make long distance calls for free. Links:
