COME TO OUR WIRELESS EMERGENCY ALERT PARTY
1 October 2018, 10:42 am

This Wednesday, October 3rd, something very special will happen in the United States. Shortly after 2 pm, nearly every cell phone in the country will receive an emergency alert as a test of the Presidential Alert function that phones now have and which you CANNOT opt out of. So what better way to mark the occasion than to get a crowd of hackers (and hacker fans) together to capture the moment?

If you're in the New York metro area, we suggest you set aside an hour this coming Wednesday afternoon and join us at The Commons Cafe, 388 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn at around 1:30 pm to be a part of this magical moment. In the future, receiving this alert on your phone will likely inspire either significant annoyance or panic, so why not be a part of the one time when it can be an event of pure fun?

As is traditional in the hacker world, we would like to perform as many tests and experiments as we can when the moment arrives. Please bring different types of phones and devices to see how (and if) they work during this test. The whole thing will be captured for posterity and plans are in the works to broadcast the event live over the radio on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York. (To add to the fun, a nationwide Emergency Alert Service test is planned for all television and radio stations in the country immediately following the cell phone test.)

Wednesday, October 3rd, 1:30 pm

The Commons Cafe, 388 Atlantic Avenue (between Hoyt and Bond), Brooklyn, New York

VOLUME 20 OF THE HACKER DIGEST RELEASED
6 September 2018, 11:39 am

We've released Volume 20 of The Hacker Digest. If you're a lifetime digital subscriber, you will have already received this edition. Volume 20 is comprised of issues from 2003, when war was in the air and all kinds of challenges faced the hacker community. It's a pretty fascinating period to look back upon.

You can click here to buy Volume 20 or become a lifetime digital subscriber here. If you do the latter, you will receive digital copies of everything we have published to date, plus everything that we publish in the future. So far, we've digitized 30 out of our 34 years.

CIRCLE OF HOPE VIDEOS RELEASED
4 September 2018, 3:44 am

All of the scheduled talks from The Circle of HOPE conference are now available after six weeks of getting them all organized and presented with the best possible quality.

You can get them as flash drives (they no longer fit on a single 128GB drive) or as individual downloads in full HD quality. (For those of you who still believe in DVDs, those are coming, but they take significantly more work to put together - we'll let you know.)

All videos are completely DRM-free and able to be shared anywhere. To get everything sent to you on two flash drives, head over to this page on our store. If you'd prefer to pick and choose the talks you want to download, you can begin your browsing here. (You can download the Chelsea Manning interview for free! Also available at no charge is a presentation by the Internet Society, who make these high quality recordings possible.)

(Audio from all talks is also available for download at hope.net.)

 


CLUB-MATE FINALLY BACK IN STOCK
30 August 2018, 10:48 am

You may have noticed that our Club-Mate supply has been out of stock for a while. There are a variety of reasons for this, including logistical issues and the huge amount we needed to save for our conference this summer. But our ship has finally come in (literally). We've got a new supply of Club-Mate in 12- and 18-bottle cases, along with single bottle samplers for the timid. You can find it all in the Club-Mate section of our store!

The PDF version has been available to digital lifetime subscribers for a while and now the Kindle version is also available, along with the EPUB version. (We've been sidetracked by HOPE preparations and recovery. We apologize for the delay.)

Also available is the most recent in our PDF archive series: Volume 19 from 2002. (Every three months we release another volume from our archives. Volume 20 will be available by the end of August.)

2019 HACKER CALENDAR IS OUT
17 August 2018, 3:18 am

The brand new 2019 Hacker Calendar has been officially released. It contains yet another set of amazing payphone photos from around the world, along with calendar entries for nearly every day of the year, filled with momentous historical notes of interest to hackers and the world of technology in general. Each month features another 12"x12" glossy color photo of a public phone, none of which have been printed before, either in previous calendars or in 2600. And while 2019 may seem far away, it grows closer with every moment. (Plus, this calendar becomes operational in September of this year, as we have a special four-month page for the last part of 2018, complete with yet another awesome payphone photo!)

Get your 2019 calendar here. Get your super-discounted 2018 calendar here.

 


2600 JOINS THE SECUREDROP NETWORK
17 July 2018, 11:39 am

We are very proud to join forces with the Freedom of the Press Foundation by becoming a part of the SecureDrop open-source whistleblower system. This is an extremely secure method of accepting documents and other material from anonymous sources. Coded by the late Aaron Swartz, SecureDrop is currently in operation worldwide at a variety of media outlets who have a strong interest in protecting their sources and publishing the truth.

In order to use SecureDrop, you must run Tor Browser and connect to our .onion address. Specific details can be found at www.2600.com/securedrop. It's very simple to add documents and have them sent to us without our ever knowing who the source is. The system allows for messages to be sent back and forth between us and the submitter, again without identities, IP numbers, or geographical locations being revealed.

SecureDrop has been a topic at previous HOPE conferences and there are panels on the groundbreaking service at The Circle of HOPE this weekend. We are thrilled to add our names to those who have already made this project as vital as it is to a free and open press.

(You can still submit articles to 2600 in the old-fashioned way by emailing them to articles@2600.com. Your contributions to our pages are what help make the hacker world so interesting.)


SUMMER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
12 July 2018, 1:36 pm

Summer is here and, with it, the Summer issue of 2600! If you're a subscriber, you probably already know this since you're likely holding it in your hands as you read this. If you're not a subscriber, that's real easy to fix by clicking here. If you have a Kindle, it's even easier. After you subscribe (U.S. or U.K.), you literally don't have to lift a finger as issues will automatically appear on your device. You can also subscribe through Google Play or the Nook from anywhere on Earth. For a full listing of our digital options, visit our digital edition guide, which we're always updating.
