Spring is in the air and our spring issue is on the stands - most of them, anyway. If you're a subscriber, you probably are already deeply absorbed in the latest news from the hacker world - the real one, not the kind you hear about on TV. If you've never been a subscriber or if you've let your subscription lapse, it's easy to subscribe through our online store. You can also find us at newsstands and book stores worldwide - if your store doesn't carry us, please suggest doing so to them. And last, but not least, are our digital options - everything from Kindle subscriptions in the United States and United Kingdom, as well as subscriptions via Google Play and Nook. There are other options too, including methods of getting individual issues digitally, all outlined in our digital editions section. After all this, you might still be able to come up with an excuse why you don't have an issue in front of you right now. But it's getting harder.

As has become our tradition, we will be donating ten percent of all HOPE ticket sales for the entire month of April to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. You can be part of a truly amazing conference and support one of the world's most important organizations, all at the same time.

With every passing year, the EFF becomes more vital in the fight for electronic freedom and as a defense against the evils of powerful entities who see freedom of speech as an inconvenience. Whether it's the NSA or the MPAA, patent trolls or oppressive regimes, the EFF has been there to stand up for what's right. This is our way of saying thanks. It can be yours too.

The Eleventh HOPE will take place July 22-24, 2016 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.

As always, HOPE will feature a variety of talks by EFF staff attorneys and activists within our 100 or so presentations that weekend. We'll also have an EFF membership table and all sorts of other fun activities involving them, other organizations, and thousands of attendees. And, of course, we'll have a keynote address by Cory Doctorow. Watch the website for updates.

We're thrilled to announce Cory Doctorow as our first keynote for The Eleventh HOPE this summer.

Cory Doctorow ( is a science fiction novelist, blogger, and technology activist. He is the co-editor of the popular weblog Boing Boing (, and a contributor to The Guardian, Publishers Weekly, Wired, and many other newspapers, magazines, and websites. (He even wrote an article for 2600 under a different name many years ago!) He is a special consultant to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (, you know, those superheroes who defend freedom in cyberspace on a daily basis.

His two latest books are In Real Life, a young adult graphic novel created with Jen Wang (2014); and Information Doesn't Want to Be Free, a business book about creativity in the Internet age (2014). His latest young adult novel is HOMELAND, the bestselling sequel to 2008's LITTLE BROTHER. His latest novel for adults is Rapture of the Nerds, written with Charles Stross and published in 2012. His New York Times best seller Little Brother was published in 2008. His latest short story collection is With a Little Help, available in paperback, ebook, audiobook, and limited edition hardcover.

Cory co-founded the open source peer-to-peer software company OpenCola, and serves on the boards and advisory boards of the Participatory Culture Foundation, the Clarion Foundation, the Metabrainz Foundation, and The Glenn Gould Foundation.

On top of all of that, Cory Doctorow is a gifted and passionate speaker and we believe his keynote address will be an inspiration to all who experience it. We're looking forward to having him be a part of The Eleventh HOPE.

The Eleventh HOPE will be taking place at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City July 22-24, 2016. Tickets are selling fast - we are well past the halfway point of our maximum attendance and we may actually sell out for the first time in our history. If you intend to go, we suggest buying your tickets in advance, as we can't guarantee we'll have any left at the door and if we do they'll be more expensive. The link for tickets is

We still have many openings for talks and presentations. Visit our speaker page for more info on that.

And if you want to help put The Eleventh HOPE together, there are plenty of ways to get involved. Simply check out this link.

The brand new Winter issue of 2600 is now out and available to all! In fact, it's probably within arm's reach right now if you're a subscriber. If you're not, don't despair. There are plenty of options. You can become a subscriber and never have to face this problem again. We can also be found in all kinds of bookstores around the world, from the shady to the mainstream. Or you can go digital. We have Kindle subscriptions available in the United States and the United Kingdom and Google Play subscriptions available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Netherlands, Russia, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and Australia. Our newest option that just started with this issue is the Nook subscription, available worldwide. There's still more, so many that we have a whole section of our website devoted to outlining them all. With each issue, there are more ways of finding us and less reasons not to. We hope you become a part of the fun if you haven't already.

With all of the commotion that took place with the release of tickets to The Eleventh HOPE on Monday (we've already sold close to half of our capacity), you may not have been aware that we also released a Call For Participation, which you can read here.

Good speakers are an essential part of the HOPE conferences, and each time we do this, the variety and creative ideas of our many presenters are what make HOPE truly shine. Unlike most other conferences, we open the door to all kinds of different ideas and approaches to the hacker world. A typical speaker lineup may consist of a college professor, a 13-year-old kid, an activist, and a spy - all in a row. (Of course, it's much more diverse than that.) What matters to us is that you have something to say, regardless of who you are, where you're from, and what your experience is. This is the place for new ideas and approaches. With over a hundred slots to fill, your words have a great chance at being included.

Full instructions on how to submit your ideas on both talks and workshops can be found on The Eleventh HOPE website, in addition to many other ways of getting involved. Whether as a speaker, workshop coordinator, volunteer, or attendee, we look forward to seeing you at The Eleventh HOPE in July!

The Eleventh HOPE will be held on July 22-24, 2016 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.

The moment is at hand. Tickets for The Eleventh HOPE will officially go on sale Monday, January 11th, at 11:11 am Eastern Time. Simply click here at that time.

Do not panic - these tickets will not sell out in three seconds like the last couple of batches. But the possibility exists that they will sell out since more people attend every time and our space, though huge, is limited. If you're relatively sure that you'll be attending the conference, we strongly suggest buying your tickets as soon as possible.

The eleventh Hackers On Planet Earth conference will be held July 22-24, 2016 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.

Keep watching for more info on the conference.

It only took a few seconds once more but our second batch of tickets to The Eleventh HOPE have come and gone. We're sorry.

But all is not lost. The main batch of tickets will go on sale in early January. Check this space for updates.

The eleventh Hackers On Planet Earth conference will be held July 22-24, 2016 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.

It's way too early for speaker information but we've had people like Edward Snowden, Daniel Ellsberg, Steve Wozniak, and Jello Biafra keynoting in the past and we always have over 100 speakers and presentations from the community that are remembered for many years afterward. We have no doubt this next conference will be even better.

Keep watching for more info on the conference.
