Where to begin Hacking ???

For all the people who are new at this whole “computer” thing and don’t really understand what hacking is all about and where to begin, I offer up these links to some great places to start learning.

News:
www.digg.com

Presentations:
http://www.lessig.org/freeculture/free.html <-- A speech given talking all about the problems facing culture when dealing with copyright and other digital laws.

Podcasts:
http://www.grc.com/SecurityNow.htm <-- This is fantastic for people who are new to the field. If you have the time or motivation, go back and listen to them from day 1, they assume you know very little if anything and hit on all of the major topics in the security field. Fantastic show.

IPTV Shows:
http://www.binrev.com/ <-- Produce a good IPTV show and also have forums that are usually helpful.
http://www.hak5.org <--- Duh....

Video Resources:
Watching/reading papers or videos from past conventions such as Shmoocon, DefCon, or BlackHat, is a good idea. 

If you are interested in websec (web security) you should pretty much understand the different protocols on the web, i.e TCP/IP, FTP, HTTP, SSH, etc.

Knowledge of HTML, PHP, ASP, SQL, Perl, and Python is good.

HTML: http://www.w3schools.com
PHP: http://www.php.net
ASP.NET: http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1
SQL: http://www.mysql.com
Perl: http://www.perl.com/
Python: http://www.python.org
