  Electronic underground community - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The electronic underground community is a closed culture grown around electronic/computer security.
The people of this community share a near-obsession for technology, and some are very paranoid.
There are some other communities surrounding the underground community, but not part of the community itself, for example, the script-kiddie community.

It is clear that the NWRS forms a community of some sort and is considered a family by many of its members.
This definition of community allows for the flexibility, mobility, common interests, and lack of permanent physical space that is experienced in the NWRS as a community.
It is a means of keeping the lines of communication open at all times and plays an integral role in maintaining a sense of community among Northwest ravers.

 Information security - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Information security is not confined to computer systems, nor to information in an electronic or machine-readable form.
In fact it is a common misconception, or misunderstanding, that information security is synonymous with computer security—in any of its guises: computer and network security, information technology (IT) security, information systems security, information and communications technology (ICT) security.
Each of these has a different emphasis, but the common concern is the security of information in some form (electronic in these cases): hence, all are subsets of information security.

 Need for Speed Underground - PC News at GameSpot   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Electronic Arts' Canadian development studio has looked to the street racing scene for inspiration and has married the core gameplay of the Need for Speed franchise with the aesthetics of street racing.
Underground is the meat of the single-player game and is a career-style mode that starts you off as a peon in the underground racing scene.
Need for Speed Underground 2 is pretty good, but unfortunately most of the stuff you do in between races keeps you away from the game's best moments.

 Electronic Journals:
The Grand Information Future?
  (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The ease of electronic publication coupled with demonstrable economic efficiencies has led those concerned with the economics of the scholarly communication system and the predatory practices of some commercial publishers to suggest new models of information dissemination which emphasize an increased role for scholars and libraries.
Because electronic journals are so new, much of the marketing expenses for CJTCS will come from the need to encourage contributions and reassure researchers their articles will be broadly distributed, covered by the major indexing and abstracting publications, and count for tenure consideration.
Because of the value added functions of electronic journals, it is conceivable that a journal that costs $1,000 per year in the paper realm would cost an additional 5%, 10%, or even 20% percent in the electronic realm.

A hacker community is a group of programmers who share code, exchange improvements and teach one another "tricks" or better methods or writing.
Probably the most notable hacker community is the community of open source/free software programmers.
In this community, Richard Stallman and Linus Torvalds are two of the most well-known hackers.

While one might be able to secure a computer beyond misuse using extreme measures (locked in a vault without any means of power or communication for example), this would not be regarded as a useful secure system because of the above requirement.
Cryptographic techniques can be used to defend data in transit between systems, reducing the probability that data exchanged between systems can be intercepted or modified.
Strong authentication techniques can be used to ensure that communication end-points are who they say they are.

After a brief foray into hair metal, his love for synth pop quickly paved the way to industrial, and by 1990 John was programming and writing music for early beat driven industrial tracks with his band, Children of Atom.
Vancouver's deep underground community of electronic music artists was thriving, and Children of Atom was in the middle of it, playing at times several live shows a month.
Some people laughed as he'd be the only guy at a rave with a Ministry T-shirt on, but when they'd see him step behind some crazy silver box and tweak knobs that made the sound system go bonkers, the laughing turned to all smiles.

One of the historical roots of the strong feeling of community that emerged is the fact that COARA started out as a series of face-to-face meetings among citizens who wanted a shared information resource they could tap into via their modems, but who weren't quite sure what it was they wanted.
Their vision of COARA as a testbed for future international communities was supported by the core members in Oita, who were hungry to communicate with people in other parts of the world.
The citizens I met in Oita were eager to use CMC to bypass the mass media and communicate directly with their counterparts--the housewives and professionals in Santa Monica and elsewhere--to show that there is more to Japan than the picture painted by the American media.

This idea of many-to-many communications as a framework for collective goods is a powerful one that many who are familiar with previous communication revolutions are often slow to grasp.
And organizations such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation are forming committees in defense of the political freedoms previously enjoyed in cyberspace that now are threatened by powerful political interests.
The online community has a responsibility to the freedom it enjoys, and if it wants to continue to enjoy that freedom, more people must take an active part in educating the nontechnical population about several important distinctions that are lost in the blitz of tabloid journalism.

 CNN - Electronic music goes on a Community Service Tour - July 20, 1999
And after the underground hit single "Now Is the Time" was released in 1994, The Crystal Method even managed to open up for England's Chemical Brothers in January 1995 (the Chemical Brothers are expected to tour later this summer).
So Jordan and Kirkland came up with the Community Service Tour, which is as much about trying to validate electronic music as about adding some much-needed variety to the summer concert circuit -- currently dominated by the unplugged Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Lilith Fair tours.
Jordan acknowledges that in coming years, it may be more difficult to replicate this summer's stellar lineup, as many of the British bands opt to stay in Europe during the summer months and play local festivals.

 Synthetic Block   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
After refining his talent for composition, rhythm and electronic timbres in the now legendary cassette underground of the '80s, Jonathan Block had his first full length CD released by the Mindspore label in 1998.
As many muscians in the spacemusic community have discovered, it is very difficult to attract interest to a new project that is so much of a meltdown of genres as to be in and of itself totally unique.
Block's concert audiences are advised to experience the event without the restraints usually implied by western venues, "I make it a point, at the beginning of a show, to tell folks that they don't have a responsibility to sit in their chairs and stare at me- they can move around, I really don't care.

Published by Project Underground in October 2000, this report is a packet of dynamic and useful materials for communities and non-governmental organizations fighting gold mining.
The Gold Album builds off of materials previously developed by Project Underground on gold mining and is also useful for efforts to change public opinion about the economic and cultural importance of gold.
The paper was published as the result of demands made by several specific communities in reaction to unacceptable operations of the Newmont Minahasa mine, planned operations of Aurora Gold (both in North Sulawesi, Indonesia) and of the huge Batu Hijau copper-gold mine on Sumbawa Island, Indonesia (also managed by Newmont).

It is theoretically possible to prove the correctness of computer programs (within very limited circumstances) though the likelihood of actually achieving this in large-scale practical systems is regarded as unlikely in the extreme by most with practical experience in the industry -- see Bruce Schneier et al.
It's also possible to protect messages in transit (ie, communications) by means of cryptography.
There is an extensive culture associated with electronic security; see electronic underground community.

 mtv.com - News - Electronic Music Underground Comes Up For Air In Spain
underground such as Matthew Herbert, Gez Varley, Luomo and Andrew Weatherall were elevated, if briefly, to the level of superstars during the festival's final two days (see "Sigur Ros, Aphex Twin Heat Up Barcelona Fest"), where they performed to crowds numbering in the tens of thousands Friday and Saturday nights.
Add to that a three-hour DJ set by Masters At Work and the double-bill tandem of Richie Hawtin and Jeff Mills separated by only an hour, and the result was a spectacle that Barcelona — maybe even the world — hasn't known the likes of.
No less gratifying than the fantastic music, however, was wandering among the three sound arenas and observing the whoops and cheers that arose whenever an older underground — Luomo's "Market," for example — took hold of a dance floor tuned in to every turn of the table, every segue, every knob twiddle and every glitch.

Unlike music-based counter-culture movements of the Sixties with psychedelia, the Seventies with punk, and the Eighties with rap, all of which were overtly political in their messages—and in the process collapsed because of those very beliefs—the electronic sounds of the Nineties have been barren of politics.
There are a number of issues that have bubbled to the top where the young people are seeing the impact politics have on their life and they are expressing interest and making sure that their opinions count.
