SPEAKER SUBMISSIONS FOR THE CIRCLE OF HOPE ARE NOW OPEN
12 January 2018, 10:43 am

Speaker submissions for The Circle of HOPE are now open! That means if you have an idea for something you'd like to present at HOPE this year, we're ready to hear your ideas. Unlike most other conferences, we're very open to considering non-established voices and brand new ideas. This is what we've become known for over the years. Our community is an open one and we move forward by listening and sharing our knowledge.

Of course, we will also have many presentations from established experts with extremely impressive backgrounds. That is the magic of HOPE - the mixing of ideas and experience levels in the hacker community.

If you want to be a speaker this year, your presentation ideas should be submitted with a synopsis of your topic and a short presenter bio. Speakers will be chosen by peer review, based on topics and relevance. Seminars, panels, fireside chats, tutorials, debates, interviews, and other types of presentations are all welcome. Most presentations will be given 50 minutes.

HOPE includes a very wide variety of topics, limited only by our collective imagination: cryptography, copyright, telecommunications, new technologies, research, experimentation, surveillance, countersurveillance, privacy, anonymity, censorship, hardware hacking, programming, democracy and law, education, social engineering, digital protests, hacking society, and even more. We are also looking for innovative subjects and presentation formats. At a HOPE conference there isn't just a right to explore, there is a mandate to cross boundaries. Come show us what you've got!

Submissions should be sent to speakers@hope.net and include speaker names (or aliases) and email addresses, with the title and a description of the proposed presentation. Also include a *brief* biographical statement.

We will start letting people know their talks are approved on a staggered schedule beginning as early as next month. Notifications will continue through June. Timing is based on many factors including strength of presentation, number of similar talks, overall relevance, and more. But even if you don't get an acceptance notification, we will have an unscheduled track at the conference that's open to everyone in addition to a couple of lightning talk rounds. You may also be asked if you'd like to do a last minute fill-in. At a HOPE conference, anything is possible. But part of the magic is to take that first step and put forth a brand new idea.

The Circle of HOPE will be taking place July 20, 21, and 22, 2018 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City and will feature over 100 talks ranging from highly technical to socially provocative, but all connected in some way to the wonderful world of hacking. In addition, we'll have a huge floorspace for all kinds of hacker projects and displays.

CLUB-MATE WINTER EDITION HAS ARRIVED
9 January 2018, 10:04 am

We just got our annual shipment of Club-Mate Winter Edition. This is the special flavor released for a brief period in Germany once a year. We don't have a whole lot of the stuff so if it's something you desire, we suggest acting fast and hitting this link.


NEXT BATCH OF HOPE TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY
9 January 2018, 7:49 am

Our last two ticket sale events were over in just around one second. We know this was the cause of much anxiety and frustration for those of you who weren't among the lucky ones. We believe this next and final round will last much longer than the first two, but it's quite likely these tickets will also go relatively fast. Even with our increased space this July, more people are attending each year and tickets are going faster. We don't want to overcrowd the venue, so we're keeping a watchful eye on the number of attendees, which will make tickets harder to get overall. If you're certain that you want to go to HOPE this year, we strongly suggest you get tickets as quickly as possible so that you're guaranteed entry to the conference. (We have also lifted our four ticket maximum.)

This next batch will become available this Friday, the 12th of January, at 12:12 pm Eastern Time. Visit the HOPE site at that time to get a link directly to the ticket sales.

You can also get a super-discounted hotel room for The Circle of HOPE by visiting this link - these should be available for a while but they will also sell out at some point.

The Circle of HOPE will be held July 20-22, 2018 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. We wish you luck on Friday and look forward to seeing you at HOPE!


WINTER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
4 January 2018, 9:02 am

It's the dead of winter and no better time for a brand new issue of 2600 to be in your hands. There are many ways you can help make this happen. If you're already a subscriber, there's no need to do anything. Whether it's analog or digital, you can count on our new issue being in your hands within days, if not already. If you haven't yet subscribed, it's easy and painless to correct that problem. Simply go to our main subscription page to sign up for printed copies. Prefer the Kindle? That's easy too! You can subscribe from any U.S. or U.K. Kindle account. In addition, you can subscribe through Google Play or the Nook in most parts of the world. For a full list of digital options, visit our complete digital edition guide on our site.

We hope all of this will help you stay warm through the cold days ahead.


DISCOUNTED HOTEL ROOMS AVAILABLE FOR THE CIRCLE OF HOPE
5 December 2017, 11:20 am

We're happy to announce that Hotel Pennsylvania has already put aside a block of heavily discounted rooms for us during our next conference. Simply click here to reserve them. We doubt you'll find a better deal anywhere in the city - and you'll be in the same building as all the fun! While we expect this special room rate to be available for the near future, the hotel WILL fill up at some point so be forewarned.

The Circle of HOPE will be taking place July 20-22, 2018 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. Keep checking hope.net for more details.


VOLUME 17 OF THE HACKER DIGEST RELEASED
1 December 2017, 10:49 am

We've just released Volume 17 of The Hacker Digest. If you're a digest subscriber, you should have already received your copy. This volume was from the year 2000, where we made the whole Y2K thing pale in comparison to what was going on in the hacker community. It was the year Kevin Mitnick was finally released from prison - and the year the Motion Picture Association of America came after us for daring to help people play DVDs on a Linux machine. Many of these issues have been sold out for years, but now they're available in digital form.

If you're looking to see what our whole digitization project is all about, this is a great year to start with. Click here to buy Volume 17 or here to become a  lifetime Hacker Digest subscriber and receive every digest put out so far, as well as everything we publish into the future. We now have 26 years of 2600 digitized in non-DRM PDF format. We currently have Volumes 1 through 17 encoded, as well as Volumes 25 through 33. Every three months, a new digest will be released that will narrow the gap of undigitized issues. Also, a new digest of the previous year's issues is released each spring. (For those of you who want to get all of the digital issues as well as paper editions, we have a special offer here. And if you already have a lifetime subscription to the paper edition, you can upgrade to the digital lifetime subscription at a super discounted rate.)

 


ONE TIME CLUB-MATE BLOWOUT SALE WHILE SUPPLY LASTS
15 November 2017, 11:13 am

Here's the deal. We have a few cases of Club-Mate that have a "best buy" date of November 23rd. We can say from experience that the quality does not magically decline after that date (we've had bottles well over a year past the "best buy" date and haven't noticed a difference) but we cannot sell them after then. We want the space so we're slashing the price effective immediately. We're offering 18-packs for just $20 plus shipping. That's just over $1 a bottle, cheaper than it's ever been anywhere! But again, we don't have a lot so we expect it to run out. And even if it doesn't, we can't sell it after next week. Follow this link to take advantage of this - and don't expect this to happen again anytime soon. (We will also be out of stock until early 2018 - we are expecting some Winter Edition in January, however.)


AUTUMN ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
5 October 2017, 10:15 am

The leaves of Autumn have begun to turn, as have the pages of the Autumn edition of 2600, which is hitting the stands worldwide as you read this. One can be sent to your mailbox easily and cheaply by subscribing through our online store.

But it doesn't end there. You can wander on down to your local bookstore or newsstand and pick up the latest issue if we're carried there. And if we're not, you can let us know and we'll take steps to fix it.

And, of course, our digital options abound. You can subscribe via Kindle in either the U.S. or the U.K., while obtaining individual issues for other areas (see our guide here). You can have issues sent to your phone or computer via Google Play. You can also subscribe through the Barnes and Noble Nook. And if all of this makes you hunger for more, you can peruse our digital digests from years past.

No matter how you read us, we hope to enhance the days of Autumn with all kinds of mind-provoking hacker material!

 


NEW GERMAN SODA INTRODUCED
3 October 2017, 10:44 am

For those of you who want to step outside the world of Club-Mate, yet still possess the coolest imported German soda on the block, we invite you to give Lapacho a try. It has no caffeine and lower amounts of sugar, all the while retaining a fruity and pleasant taste and the various health benefits of lapacho tea. We've got a limited amount for testing in this country. You can get 12-packs, 18-packs, or a half and half combo pack with Club-Mate.
