First released in 1985 via BBS, Phrack has been staffed by dozens of editors and contributors in its three-plus decades. The long-running zine has also hosted a number of notable articles, including the famed Hacker Manifesto and Smashing The Stack For Fun And Profit.

    Sadly, it has kinda outlived its life cycle. While it was certainly very important in the past, it did not really age well. Today it's little more than a piece of nostalgia, something fondly remembered as the source of many important revelations from a time when the internet wasn't what it is today.

    But give it time. If our law makers stay on the road down to insanity, it could well become very relevant again soon.

    I have read 2600 for years (after recommendations from people here). Any feedback on how it compares to that magazine? Is it worth having both subscriptions?
