Reading list for holiday hackers

TIPPINST -- We run a Media Writing course that requires first year students to compile listings of useful URLs. Some students are into DIY weaponry (not required by the course) and others are into e-books (as distinguished from e-learning). A few of their recommended links suggests some intriguing conclusions, like they've been reading over madfrog's shoulder. Some of the IRC listings like irc.scr3am.com 6667 #ebooks have thousands of files updating regularly and the range runs from hacking to programming fundamentals to website design to security essentials. The range of information far surpasses that available on the shelf of a college library and it exceeds what would fit on my O'Reilly Safari Bookshelf.
