I actually propose a definition for this in my next (to be recorded any moment now...) episode.

"Hacker" is anyone who engages in "hacking", of course.

"Hacking" (I suggest) is "the art of finding novel or unexpected uses for a system."

I'll throw that out for discussion at the risk of having to revise my materials before I record...
