Share and enjoy! imp.
1. Commonly found at the end of
software release announcements and README files, this phrase
indicates allegiance to the hacker ethic of free information
sharing (see hacker ethic, sense 1). 2. The motto of the
complaints division of Sirius Cybernetics Corporation (the ultimate
gaggle of incompetent suits) in Douglas Adams's "Hitch
Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy". The irony of using this as a
cultural recognition signal appeals to hackers.
