Phil Lapsley 

When: Fri., Feb. 15, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: free

Well before the word "Internet" entered the popular lexicon, the incredibly elaborate technological system capable of connecting people across land and water -- the world's largest machine -- was the telephone system. And although it was also well before the term "hacker" meant much to anybody, telephones ended up inadvertently producing a motley crew of pranksters who sought to outsmart the system: the proto-hackers who called themselves the "phone phreaks." Join engineer, hacker, and author Phil Lapsley at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland) on Friday, Feb. 15, as he discusses his new book, Exploding the Phone: The Untold Story of the Teenagers and Outlaws Who Hacked Ma Bell. 7 p.m., free.
