Don't really like this article, the writing is embellished and the thesis unclear.

The thesis is that, through a process similar to gentrification of ethnic neighborhoods, the term "hacker" and the culture it represents has been replaced with a shallow facsimile that's more palatable to moneyed interests. Not sure how you missed it.

He probably missed it because it was long winded and poorly articulated.
