This is how to do hacker culture in a non-technical book and get it right. I was a bit surprised not to see Bruce Sterling or someone listed as a contributor -- it's spot on, if a few years out of date (Frank gives Carlotta an Amiga 2000... in 1995?).
... hah -- yes -- "The Hacker Crackdown" definitely was a reference; the list of filenames near the end is quoted from there! So that's where the A2000 came from -- there's a bit in THC where a forensics expert describes it as her ideal machine.
