In computer subculture, it is a badge of honour, meaning someone with an advanced understanding of computers. Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book exemplifies ’60s counterculture and the hacker ethic. 32 Hackers are fundamentally nerds, young engineers who play with a technology, manipulating and transforming it until it becomes transparent. Nerds invented the Web and many other technologies we now take for granted. Traditionally, young entrepreneurs are respected by society. However, during the ’70s the nerd developed a subversive streak.

This is imperceptible to the human eye. The image is then divided into 8 x 8-pixel blocks. For each block, the maximum compression is 64:1. The importance of each block to the overall image is then assessed. The human eye is more sensitive to low-frequency colours, such as reds and yellows, than to highfrequency colours, such as blues and greens. Low-frequency colours are therefore compressed less than highfrequency colours. The retina is also very good at identifying areas of high contrast. When a block is made up of pixels that are relatively bright compared to nearby pixels they are also deemed important and compressed less.
