DISCOUNT HOTEL OPTIONS FOR HOPE 2020
27 January 2020, 12:36 pm

We are pleased to share news about two off-campus hotels for HOPE 2020, both in close proximity to the conference.

Conference rates are now available at two area hotels. The Fairfield Inn and Suites for $159/night and the Courtyard Marriott for $169/night, plus tax and fees. (The two hotels are next door to each other.)

Both hotels are in the Fresh Meadows area of Queens, about a five minute ride from St. John's. Use this link to make a reservation at either location. We are planning a shuttle between the hotels and St. John's.

Cost-effective campus housing options are also available. Visit our site for more information.

Tickets for HOPE are now on sale in the 2600 Store.

WINTER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED - GOOGLE PLAY UPDATE
16 January 2020, 1:14 pm

Winter has come once again, which can only mean one thing: the Winter issue of 2600 is out! Here's how to get your hands on it.

Once more, we're offering this issue in PDF format. If this is successful, we will be able to expand this format, add more digital subscription options, etc. Please help spread the word so we can continue to expand.

Unfortunately, there's one less digital format available. Google has decided to no longer support what they refer to as "print replica" magazines, something we've never been called before. What we've learned from this is that it's almost always a bad idea to give such control to an entity that clearly doesn't understand the publishing world. In addition to our own PDF version, you can obtain 2600 digitally through the Kindle (U.S. and U.K.) and the Nook. You can see a full listing of all of our digital options here.

And we certainly haven't forgotten the paper edition. In fact, we're happy to hear that more bookstores are opening in the States in recent years. To see if there's one in your neighborhood that carries us, check our list of stores.

And don't forget - you can always subscribe and have issues sent directly to you!

 


HOPE CALL FOR SPEAKERS NOW OPEN
16 January 2020, 11:25 am

HOPE 2020 will take place in Queens, New York City from July 31 through August 2, 2020. Submissions are now open for speakers!

The conference venue promises more space than ever before, including a theater, a huge indoor pavilion, seminar rooms, and acres of outdoor space. Other features include affordable on-site housing and food, easy accessibility from New York airports and public transportation, free onsite parking, and 30Gb of network bandwidth.

Email your talk proposal to speakers@hope.net. Include a proposed title and abstract. Provide enough information so it is clear why HOPE attendees would find your topic interesting, new, and relevant. Also include a brief biography. Most speaker/panel sessions are allotted 50 minutes, including time for Q&A. All types of presentations are encouraged, from solo talks to panels, debates, demonstrations, and interactive discussions. Submissions should highlight their relevance to hacking. They should be original, and not previously presented. We encourage speakers from all age groups and backgrounds.

HOPE is an inclusive event, seeking civil discourse and education on all topics related to the hacker world. HOPE encourages all approaches and interpretations to hacking, presented by hackers, makers, developers, teachers, learners, and experimenters. If you have a passion for discovering how things work and sharing that knowledge, you have the hacker spirit.

Some topics from past HOPE events have included:

* Technologies, along with their benefits and risks

* Social engineering

* Education

* Hacker culture and lifestyles

* Effecting social change

* Industry, government, commerce, and multinationals

* Science, engineering and math

* Body modification, hacking and enhancement

* Phones, networks, and telecommunication

* Hardware and software

* Secrets and disclosures

* Data, privacy, encryption, and policy

* Outer space and beyond

and much, much more

 

All submissions will receive an automated response. (You won't get multiple responses if you email us more than once in a short period of time, but we will still get your email.) Notices of acceptance will begin to be mailed out in the weeks ahead.

We sold out our first two batches of HOPE 2020 tickets in only a couple of seconds back in November and December. We're now preparing our final batch to go on sale this Monday, January 13th at 12 noon Eastern Time.

This is a bigger batch so you have a much better chance of getting tickets. Still, we may decide at any time to limit the total number of attendees, so if you're certain you want to attend, we strongly suggest you register early.

It will be held from July 31st to August 2nd at St. John's University in Queens. We will have on campus housing, as well as special deals with hotels in the area. All of that info will be posted at hope.net in January. As this is a major expansion of what we've done in the past, we'll need more volunteers than ever to make it all possible. There is much organization already underway and we are determined to make this our best conference yet, fix the problems we've encountered in previous years, and have the support and enthusiasm of our entire community. You will be seeing much more specific info on all of this, as well as ways you can get involved and make hacker history.

 


SECOND BATCH OF HOPE 2020 TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY
13 December 2019, 10:27 am

We sold out our first batch of HOPE 2020 tickets in under two seconds back in November. We expect pretty much the same thing to happen when the second batch goes on sale today at 13:13 PT so be prepared! (That's 1:13 pm Pacific Time, or 4:13 pm Eastern Time, or 10:13 pm in western Europe.)

Our 13th conference is taking place next summer in a brand new location as you've probably heard. We expect it to be bigger and better than ever with lots more activities and space - all without leaving New York City!

The link to get your tickets is store.2600.com/products/tickets-to-hope-2020 - please read the instructions on there before tickets go on sale if you want any chance of getting any today! (It will say "Sold Out" before the tickets go on sale.)

HOPE 2020 INITIAL TICKET SALES WEDNESDAY
11 November 2019, 9:21 am

Our 13th conference is taking place next summer in a brand new location as you've probably heard. We expect it to be bigger and better than ever with lots more activities and space - all without leaving New York City!

Since this is #13, we figured we'd make an initial batch of tickets available on November 13th at precisely 13:13 Eastern Time (that's 1:13 pm for those who don't do 24 hour clocks). We'll be offering them for only $10 more than what the last conference cost. We expect these to sell out in around one second (no kidding), so be prepared to do some fast typing. You may be able to jump ahead in line if you already have your info saved in our store. The link will be store.2600.com/products/tickets-to-the-hope-2020-first-batch . You will get a "not found" error before the appointed time - this is normal. You can buy up to four tickets at a time. If you somehow manage to buy more or figure out a way to get to our page before 13:13 on Wednesday, you will earn our hearty congratulations, but no tickets. Sorry, those are the rules.

HOPE 2020 will be held from July 31st to August 2nd at St. John's University in Queens. We will have on campus housing, as well as special deals with hotels in the area. All of that info will be posted at hope.net in the weeks and months ahead. As this is a major expansion of what we've done in the past, we'll need more volunteers than ever to make it all possible. There is much organization already underway and we are determined to make this our best conference yet, fix the problems we've encountered in previous years, and have the support and enthusiasm of our entire community. You will be seeing much more specific info on all of this, as well as ways you can get involved and make hacker history.

If you're one of the many who don't get tickets on Wednesday, please don't fret. There will be more opportunities. Best of luck!
