Both the hacker manifesto and the cyborg manifesto argue that they are not all alike. By “they” I mean woman and teenagers. Both Donna and the mentor believe that people stereotype too much. The mentor believes that adults think all the kids are the same “Damn kid. Probably copied it. They’re all alike… Damn kid. All he does is play games. They’re all alike.” Donna suggests that women are not all alike but are equal to men. “There is not even such a state as ‘being’ female, itself a highly complex category constructed in contested sexual scientific discourses and other social practices.” (pg.7) My manifesto is the freedom of online information. Today in society we use a lot of online information that we don’t even know when to stop. In my point of view we are over using it and taking advantage of it. There is so much information we can get off the internet today and anyone can put it online, sometimes we don’t even know if the information is true. One example of this is the state farm commercial when she believes everything that’s in the internet and according to her she goes on a date with a French model which by his physical looks it’s clear that he is not. The freedom of online information should be thought as a privilege and not as a right. We should limit ourselves with the kind of information we can find online. We can literally find any kind of information online and can access most of it for free but how can we make sure if it’s accurate.
