The definition as in the jargon file, 
http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/H/hacker.html , is arguably the most 
authoritative definition of the word. Another source I want to give you 
is http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html

both probably very usable. if you wanna round-table this i would be 
interested (provided i have time when you record)
