How far are we from "assimilated"?

>From here I am seeing tons and tons of people associating the word "hacker"
with business concepts.

"hacker" now invokes associations with "startup", "coworking", "hackathon",
"creative initiative", and worst of all, "entrepeneur".

Miss the good old association with crime - it made all these people stay
very far away.

At this rate "hacker" will soon mean multi-level-marketing.

Heck, bring back the criminals, they are more fun than these Avon investor
hype madness types.

The only way to keep from being assimilated, is to be bad for their ulcers.
