Hacking for Good?

I think that the Amazon.com website must be hacked.  They are experiencing website problems.  Who isn’t being hacked these days?

I had the privilege to know that at MicroSoft just a few days ago that they were having an event at their Redmond Campus where kids were being taught how to “hack for good”.  Did you know that? In this day and age, it’s a pretty important issue: even kids are trained how to hack, going online and hacking into what’s on the internet.  I don’t have all the details but it’s not good: whether it be for good or for bad, it is still “hacking”.

They even teach prison inmates how to “code” (build websites) but have the training to reverse engineer or at least get them started on hacking.  How about have a criminal hacking into your business or get insider information about the government?  The whole message; “hack for good” is questionable. How important is it that the prison inmates are exposed to “hacking for good”?   Why would you call it such a name, anyway?  

How can hacking be for good if it is illegal to hack websites, emails, or other things found on the internet? It is just questionable to call hacking a good thing.

Yes, I know, we have Hillary’s emails that someone hacked. Okay, that was for good. But doesn’t our country and/or the government, want to use it’s hacking skills to track down intruders into our cyberspace?

Why teach kids to hack?

Why teach prison inmates how to “code” so they can get out of prison and maybe get jobs with the “good hacker” companies that taught them coding in the prisons?  Doesn’t that sound strange?

Here’s a website about the Hackathon event they hold every year:https://blogs.microsoft.com/firehose/2016/07/27/slideshow-oneweek-hackathon-races-to-the-finish-and-expo-gets-underway/#sm.00001osbyzdeowdtyr35ydr43u350

Are these future hacking experts going to be hired by MicroSoft to spy on companies? I mean, what is going on here?

Is it a political move by MicroSoft who has a liberal agenda, helping to resettle refugees, to gain favor with the U.S. government, abiding by their liberal progressive social stance? How are they making money to train future hackers, our kids, who may want to find favor, receive recommendations for jobs in the government, and this kind of thing?

I have more and more questions about this whole thing; Hacking for Good and to help refugees resettle.  Is it safe?

Upon further research, I find that Hack For Humanity is an org to help resettle refugees that MicroSoft supports.  I know all of you are so happy we are being faced with the thousands of undocumented, unknowns, who are unvetted, being let into our country. This should be a happy event, said sarcastically by a social/political conservative and Christian, as if that matters these days.

Look at the “Christian” churches condoning LBGTQ# marriage and “identity”… Oh don’t get me started about those “churches” condoning sin as a way to fill pews and not teach the bible.

Oh what a world we live in.

We can be loving but also in love share the Love of Christ, Tell the Truth about sin and why He died on the Cross, and what that means, and at the same time question those pastors, no, CORRECT the pastors who marry gay/lesbian couples!  Read bible verses here about marriage:  http://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/marriage-bible-verses/

Getting back to my argument, why do they call their org “Hack For Humanity”?  There is a website that adds and “s” to the end, “Hacks For Humanity” whose website shows it is supported by MicroSoft here:http://hacks4humanity.com/ 

I found a recent article, written by a MicroSoft news center staffperson, Athima Chansanchai, dated July 28, 2016 located here, about the resettlement movement, I guess you could call it, here: https://news.microsoft.com/features/hack-for-humanitys-do-gooders-are-using-their-skills-to-bring-a-world-of-help-to-refugees/#sm.00001osbyzdeowdtyr35ydr43u350
