Joseph Menn’s fourth book, "Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World," was published in June 2019 by PublicAffairs and in paperback in June 2020.

Paperback out June 2!

Hi everyone, the paperback of Cult of the Dead Cow is out on June 2.
I revised and updated it, and I think it is more timely than ever, since hackers are coming together in more ways, including by protecting hospitals and vaccine researchers during the Covid pandemic.

Quotes by Joseph Menn  (?)

“Security is about how you configure power, and who has access to what. That is political,” Song said.”
Joseph Menn, Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World

“The phreakers were a diverse group, including John Draper, who called himself Cap’n Crunch after learning that whistles given out with that breakfast cereal could be used to blow 2600 hertz, which allowed free calls.”
Joseph Menn, Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World

“It wasn’t just that politicians needed to think more about technology and its unique multidisciplinary role in the world. Those in technology needed to think a lot more about politics.”
Joseph Menn, Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World
