as promised some almost three weeks ago, here are the links to the 
hackerethics as developed at/by the ccc:

Short summary:

What are the ethical principles of hacking - motivation and limits

- Access to computers - and anything which might teach you something about the 
way the world really works - should be unlimited and total. Always yield to 
the Hands-On Imperative!
- All information should be free.
- Mistrust authority - promote decentralization.
- Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not bogus criteria such as 
degrees, age, race, or position.
- You can create art and beauty on a computer.
- Computers can change your life for the better.
- Don't litter other people's data.
- Make public data available, protect private data.

I really liked the hackmeeting in Sevilla as the atmospehre was really good! 

And I also think that moving the hackmeeting from town to town, thus 
changing the organizing team each time, will turnout to be - in the long rong 
run - a very good thing, as the knowledge spreads more. Just be sure to learn 
from your successes and failures ;-) -> e.g. with a hackmeeting-howto...

thanks to whom it may concern ;-)
all the best luck to all of you,
cu Holger
