    the glider

    "The Linux folks have their penguin and the BSDers their daemon. Perl's got a camel, FSF fans have their gnu and OSI's got an open-source logo. What we haven't had, historically, is an emblem that represents the entire hacker community of which all these groups are parts. This is a proposal that we adopt one — the glider pattern from the Game of Life."

    The glider is not copyrighted or trademarked. The recommended way to use it is on a web page, with an image and a link back to either this page or direct to How To Become A Hacker. Here is a snippet of XHTML you can paste into a page.

    "Die Grafik oben auf dieser Seite wird ein Glider genannt. Es ist ein Muster von einer mathematischen Simulation, genannt "Spiel des Lebens" ("The Game of Life"). In dieser Simulation geht es um einfache Regeln, wie sich Punkte in einem Gitter verhalten. Dabei tauchen wundervoll komplexe Phänomene auf. Der Glider ist das einfachste Lebens-Muster, dass sich bewegt und gleichzeitig das wahrscheinlich am einfachsten wiederzuerkennende Muster."
