    It’s amazing to see that this magazine has been on going since 1985. How was it distributed back in the 1980s, by mail?

      You can’t even imagine (unless you’re in the same pool) how much this magazine means to someone who was born in 1985. This plus 2600 defined the way I moved forward in my life and was an amazing source of information in the early internet days. I still have a STRONG preference to the e-zin format compared to anything nowadays distributed online. I really wished we moved back to the early days social networks instead of the facebook shenanigans. Smash the social stack for fun & profit and party like it’s 1996! :)

        I was raised on the social stack unfortunately, I wish I could experience what was here before.

          Well you lost nothing mate. You still can consume phrack and all the other e-zins in the same format and way we all did in the past. Give it a shot. People after you won’t have the same chance when Facebook and the other big social networks are gone :)
