Happy New Year 0x7DE

The new year's day means nothing to hackers. But, even so, let's celebrate the year 0x7DE in the hope that this year would be even brighter than ever.

Hackers have power to create the better world by their outstanding skills including coding computer programs, designing physical objects, and even tweak human's life.

I'm proud to say that hackers are the first nation who recognize the power of open source. Now the key concept of the open source is distributed everywhere, however, it is sometimes misunderstood or even feared. So let's start giving your idea, your source, your design as a part of our freedom.

Thank you.
