In an attempt to help the world better understand the hacker culture, and to provide journalists and other researches who pose this question from time to time with a large database of responses, here is a web form:
note that I wont give out info other than a geographical layout of hackers in general (uging google maps api, nicks and locations will not be shared together)
yeah, the layout of the form sucks, but bare with me. all the fields except age have an unlimited length, lol, so if you need to explain, go ahead. it'll just be a headache I'll write a better HTML form later.
note: I use only 2 hat colors because generally most laymen who hear about hats only get a brief description and know white=legal and black=illegal. So assumeyou are using the term to describe yourself to an 80 year old.
