An insight into that "technical mind":

Most programmers insist that "hacker" doesn't mean a person who
breaks into other people's computers illegally, but someone who
likes to nose around learning how things work (that's a "cracker").
Originally, I had no formal technical background at all, but I've
learned and thrived and get along with most of the developers
because I have the same type of curiosity.
