Very close...

... hackers don't necessarily care what something was designed to do, 
only what can be done with it...

... hackers love to push the envelope, playfully explore the full range 
of possibilities, and especially they delight to think outside the box 
(outside the frameworks of conformity and mediocrity)...

... hackers are philosophers and poets, and often musicians. Hackers 
write code because its beautiful, not because they're paid for it... 
hackers are can-do people who don't give a flying rip when they're told 
they can't !      ...  yeah, watch me.  :)

kind regards,
