Seems like a waste of potential to go glory-seeking and inevitably get arrested.

Yep, and sentencing is usually way disproportionate for computer crimes, he's probably fucked.

Another good reason not to be affiliated with "hackers" anymore. This whole thing is getting more ridiculous by the second. In case you haven't noticed, hacking is pretty much dead for a long, long time. These days you will be headline news with some stupid SQL/XSS injection and even get your own dedicated Wikipedia page for doing so. Not sure what is more pathetic, getting access through SQL injection or the lame security. Everyone knows that NASA is one big sieve. In any case, hacking is dead and gone since the media snatched the term "hacker" in the late 90s and heinously tainted it beyond any recognition. So called "hackers" did their own part and because of it, policymakers are trying to pass more and more security bills that will tear this whole thing down to a grinding halt. The old days will never return, it's virtue is dead and buried. It has become a criminal business. Now it's time for a beer.

As someone who's really just starting to get into computer security, this is a major downer. It seems like "the good old days" are always before my time.

If you're young, the 'good old days' are before your time by definition.

I suppose. It's just disappointing to come into a new field and hear that "it's virtue is dead and buried" and "hacking is dead and gone."

Well, hacking became cracking. If you're cracking then your'e not hacking. A hacker is born, a cracker is created. That pretty much sums it up for me.

If however, you are interest to tinker with computers for the joy, fun and love of it, then hacking still exists.

Sure, I'd like to claim that I'm a "real hacker," (doesn't everyone?) but it seems kind of meaningless if I'm the one making the distinction. Growing up, I was all about figuring out why things worked. I'm still the same way, and if that makes me a hacker, cool.

I guess at the end of the day, I don't really care about labels, or even the ideology or near-religion associated with hacking. As long as there are new things out there to play around with, then I'll be happy.
