There are those who tell the world that they were the ones who created the Internet, when in fact it was thousands of engineers who built it. They say that they were the architects, when in fact the designers came from this same body of engineers. They say they are the real hackers when in fact they are just some people who got caught perpetrating criminal acts! People who swapped their less than cosy lives as teenage outcasts for million dollar mansions in Silicon Valley.
There is no one special person, there are only those who got rich and had a voice to be able to say such things and then there are the engineers.
Those who quietly work away at building systems. Building them because they love and care about their work, not because they seek to dominate others and to get rich quick.
