WINTER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
12 January 2017, 1:20 am

On the 12th of January 33 years ago, we released the very first issue of 2600. On that same date in 2017, we are officially releasing the brand new Winter Issue. (Incidentally, you could find all sorts of fun facts like this if you had your own 2017 Hacker Calendar.) It's never been easier to get the latest issue. Subscribing means you barely have to move. If you feel like going outside, you can find the current issue at all sorts of bookstores and newsstands. For those who prefer to go digital, we have Kindle subscriptions available in the United States and United Kingdom, and other digital subscriptions in those and other countries through Google Play and the Nook. And, of course, you can also get available back issues digitally or in print. A lot has happened since 1984. We suspect a great deal more is looming on the horizon. We hope you join us for the journey.

A MESSAGE TO 2600 READERS AND WRITERS
22 December 2016, 10:33 am

Since November, we have witnessed a variety of reactions to the surprising political developments in our country. We expect nothing less and welcome the thoughts, opinions, ideas, and schemes that our readers and writers put forth. There is one disturbing perspective, though, that we need to address.

A number of people in our community feel that hackers in particular will be under increased scrutiny and will be facing significant threats under a Trump administration. We've received requests from both readers and writers to erase all evidence of their existence in our correspondence and to cancel their subscriptions and remove their names from our database. On more than one occasion, all hacker-related clothing was also thrown in the trash.

It's this reaction that we find more disturbing than any of the many potential threats we're facing. Why? Because bad things happen when people let them. As long as we stand united and are willing to fight back against anything that would threaten us as individuals or as a community, we have what it takes to prevent such threats from taking hold. If we yield, it's handing out a blank check.

Yes, there is much to be concerned about and even to fear. Hackers, as always, seem to be right in the middle of the controversial news stories bombarding us every day. But we need to embrace this, not push it away. We have always protected the confidentiality of both our subscribers and those sources who contribute material to our publication. We will never stop doing this.

There is great strength in numbers and in intelligence. We need both in order to survive what may be hugely challenging times. We cannot let the specter of oppression slow us down because if such a scenario were to come true, that is when we would be needed the most. We should have more articles than ever, edgy and controversial material that we embrace, and a ton of people who aren't afraid to read and collect what we're putting out. After all, it's in the darkest hours when a bright light makes the most difference.

We are changing the terms for writers of printed pieces, beginning with the Winter 2016-2017 issue due out in early January. Instead of a choice between a year of our magazine or one of our t-shirts, we are now offering both of these items for every article printed. And as for what articles we're looking for, as always we want pieces that embrace the hacker spirit, that examine and dissect technology in ways others haven't, and/or that reveal inconvenient truths about services and products that those in charge really don't want people to know about. Bombshells and leaks of all types are great and, as mentioned, we always protect our sources. And, being a printed magazine, it's a lot harder to block or filter us from any part of the globe.

You can send your article contributions to articles@2600.com or by surface or air mail to 2600 Editorial Department, PO Box 99, Middle Island, NY 11953 USA.

We are but one window into a world of amazing voices. Please support others as well as us. If our speech and communication are to be seen as a threat to any regime, it's far better that there be a huge number of us than a tiny number. There will be some tests ahead and probably some hard times. We can't think of a better group to face that with.

 


AUTUMN ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
10 October 2016, 3:45 am

As the leaves begin to turn, so too will the pages of the Autumn issue of 2600 as it arrives in the various places where it's expected. One of those places could be your mailbox if you take a minute or two and subscribe! It's cheap, painless, and even fun. Of course, you don't have to turn actual physical pages if you're more in the mood for one of our digital varieties. They include Kindle subscriptions for the United States and United Kingdom, as well as other countries through Google Play and the Nook. You can also get individual and back issues digitally or in print. And if there's a bookstore near you, it's quite possible you'll find us there too!

 


2017 HACKER CALENDARS ARE OUT
8 September 2016, 4:24 am

You may have seen some of our advance copies at The Eleventh HOPE - they're now out for general consumption.

As in previous years, these calendars feature 14 of the best payphone photos that have been submitted to us in the past year. They're all 12"x12" glossy prints suitable for framing (after you've used the calendar, of course). In addition, we've filled in even more of the dates with significant moments in hacker history. Nearly every day has some momentous event that's of interest to hackers everywhere! (And if you come across a day without something historic, we invite you to do something that will put that date on next year's calendar - keep it positive.)

To get your own copy, just click here.

 


VIDEOS FROM THE ELEVENTH HOPE ARE OUT
18 August 2016, 1:54 am

It was a ton of work, but well worth it in the end. We've compiled and catalogued HD video from every talk that was given in the main tracks of The Eleventh HOPE conference, which took place July 22-24. We're quite pleased with the results and we think you'll be amazed by the quality of the talks that were given this year.

Videos are available in a variety of formats. There are DVDs for full sets or individual talks. You can download MP4s of any presentation. And you can also get a massive 128 gigabyte thumb drive containing all 100 talks from the entire conference. All of these versions are DRM-free and you're welcome to share and copy to your heart's content.

Whether or not you were able to attend The Eleventh HOPE, you can now see every talk and have your own copy to preserve. And before you know it, another HOPE will be on the horizon.

 


FINAL BATCH OF HOPE PREREGISTRATION TICKETS ON SALE
13 July 2016, 12:36 pm

We've made a limited number of tickets to The Eleventh HOPE available. Once these are gone, we won't be offering more online. We will, however, have tickets at the door at the conference for $160. These will likely sell out early. But as we've mentioned, tickets are transferable so just because we stop selling them doesn't mean you'll be locked out if you work out a deal with someone at or before the conference. Keep checking the HOPE website for updates.

 


SUMMER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
11 July 2016, 1:37 am

Right in time for the upcoming HOPE conference, the summer issue of 2600 has hit the stands and is landing in the mailboxes of our subscribers worldwide. It's incredibly easy to become a subscriber and experience this joy on a regular basis. We also have a bunch of digital editions: Kindle subscriptions in the United States and United Kingdom, Google Play, and the Nook. You can also get individual issues digitally or on paper. So choose the option that's best for you before the next issue is out!
