The Silicon Valley Tarot

The Hacker

The Hacker

Skill, concentration, resourcefulness, attention to detail. Aversion to authority, organization, governance - the symbol of anarchy hovers nearby. The Hacker has few friends but a prodigious appetite for caffeinated soft drinks. The computer might burn metaphorically with the Hacker's productivity and innovation, or it might just be actually burning - as the Hacker destroys it for fun. His powers are great; he could rule the Valley - if he could just see the big picture. The Hacker appears against a field of green; he is jealous of your computing resources. Innovation, brilliance, unconventional wisdom. Reversed: destruction, perversity, immaturity, bad personal hygiene, profound personality deficits.
