Yes!  I'm not so happy about the association with "crime", unless the
crime is "thought crime".  Freedom is way enough controversial to grind
the teeth of any wannabe "hacker-entrepreneur".  Criminals claiming the
term hackers are as despicable as startuppers doing so, IMO.  Freedom,
knowledge, cooperation, invention, creativity, fun, yes.  Crime, elite,
not so much.
