Old School Hacking

Hacking used to mostly mean making something work in new and unexpected ways that were normally an improvement or at least something that the hacker thought would be cool.  I think that we don't have as much of that as we should these days especially among kids.  When we do though, those toys and social constructs that do encourage hacking tend to be aimed at boys.

Girls can and should be hacking too...

On the current connotation of hacking if you put your mind to it you can play Donkey Kong and Zelda with the Princess as the hero and the dude needing to be rescued.
