Like Philosophers, the “writer of screens” (écranvain) is also a hacker, seeking to understand the world:

There is also something of a hacker in the écranvain, identifying the codes where extreme power goes far beyond the boxes of our connected machines to determine our manners of beings.

Gilles Bonnet, 2017

The writer-hacker handles “codes” of all kinds; equipped with knowledge, they handle a craft to understand the inner works of the world.

Even if it means derailing the machine when it works too well.
