The term, which is often used to refer to malicious programming, types of online fraud or breaking into systems, is seemingly everywhere at Facebook FB -3.39% FB -3.39% , with Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg defining it as “building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done.”
Since Facebook took over the former Sun Microsystems campus here, the street once named “Network Circle” has been changed to “Hacker Way.” Signs abound with slogans about hacking, with one saying “Hack early, hack often.” Many employees participated in an all-night hackathon on the eve of the company’s IPO, putting together prototypes for new ideas.
