SPRING ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
10 April 2017, 3:12 am

Spring has sprung and with it our eagerly anticipated Spring issue is being distributed all around the planet. Subscribers should already have copies in their possession and those with even the slowest mailmen will get them any day. You can subscribe through our online store to start or renew a subscription.

You can also find us at newsstands and bookstores worldwide. If your local outlet doesn't carry us, suggest to them that they do and let us know so we can add our voices to the chorus.

And, of course, you can also subscribe to us digitally, through Kindle in the U.S. and U.K., the Nook, and Google Play. We have a bunch of other digital options as well, which you can peruse in our digital editions section.

It's never been easier to see what all the fuss is about.

 


2600 REINSTATES $10,000 BOUNTY FOR TRUMP TAX RETURNS
3 April 2017, 10:55 am

Our $10,000 bounty for Donald Trump's tax return is back on. Let us explain why.

Last year, we had a similar offer for then candidate Trump, one which was only half serious. Things have since changed. We now have a number of people in positions of great power who apparently feel they're no longer beholden to the rest of us and can do as they please without consequence. This attitude is nothing new, but the scale of it today is quite unprecedented.

There is no law that compels the President to release this information. But being the first in modern history to refuse to do this creates a very unhealthy environment of mistrust and suspicion, one which ultimately hurts us all. And right now, the only thing that can begin the healing process is a good dose of truth. We need to find out if there's a liar and a cheat in the White House or if some kind of a witch hunt is underway by his detractors. Continuing to withhold information that has traditionally been made public is the stuff of dictatorship, not the society we all build and maintain.

We are well aware of privacy concerns as they relate to the citizens of our country. However, when you assume an incredible position of power, one that literally affects each and every one of your fellow citizens, some of the privacy previously enjoyed while not in that position winds up being sacrificed. The rest of us know your schedule, who you're talking to, all kinds of personal details from your past, and what you're generally up to each and every day. This is how the game is played and nobody is forced to be a part of it. Unilaterally changing the rules only invites the casting of aspersions over the person, the office, and everything related. It's a dark road to go down.

So here is what we're after. We're looking for the complete federal tax returns for:
Donald John Trump
721 Fifth Avenue
Apartment 66N
New York, NY 10022

The returns must be from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, or 2015. We believe any of these will paint a somewhat accurate picture of the President's recent financial filings. At the very least, we'll have something, as opposed to the blank slate we have now.

We are pledging $10,000 to the first person who gets any of these to us, provided they have not been disclosed to any other media outlet or already made public. This offer is only valid while Trump is in office.

A number of people have expressed an interest in adding to the bounty to bring the number up to a significantly higher level. We support this, but we want to be clear on a few things. We fully expect negative repercussions as a result of our stand here. While we will make every effort to shield anyone else from such actions, please understand that there is always a risk when challenging an authority such as this. We're doing it because we feel obligated to and because we think we might be able to reach people who can reveal the truth. Please only join the effort if you've thought it through carefully.

If you want to contribute to the total, we're keeping it really simple. Just email trump@2600.com and tell us how much you'd be willing to add to the total if our above conditions are met. That's it. You likely will never hear anything from us because we actually believe the chances of someone getting us the documents are fairly slim. However, if we do get them and we verify their authenticity, you will get an email informing you of this and asking you to fulfill your pledge in one of a number of methods which will be disclosed at that time. You can change your mind, but we will not release the documents until the full amount pledged/announced is raised so that we're able to fulfill our end of the bargain to the submitter. Right now, that amount is set at $10,000 and we're guaranteeing it. (If and when we receive significant amounts of pledges, we will update the figure.)

The above email address may be used for all communications on this subject. You can use our PGP key below if you want to add a level of security when emailing. The meta-data will still be visible, but not the contents of your email to us. And there are already many people emailing that address, so that in itself shouldn't be cause for concern. But we're deliberately not going full throttle with anonymity because we want this to be as simple as possible for many people to participate in and also because we want to be as open and transparent about this as we can. That said, we will always protect our sources and contributors to the fullest extent possible.

Finally, let us be clear on what we DON'T want. This is not an appeal for people to hack the IRS and attempt to liberate these documents in that manner. First off, we strongly doubt they have this information on any site accessible from the outside world. Second, we don't want people getting themselves into trouble over this. We believe there are enough people out there who already have legitimate access to this information who will see its disclosure as the right thing to do.

We will post any updates as they happen here and on our @2600 Twitter account.

WINTER OFFICIALLY ARRIVES IN AMERICA
20 January 2017, 11:38 am

The long, dark winter has officially arrived with the re-introduction of Club-Mate's Winter Edition blend. This special flavor is only made in Germany once a year and it's generally only sold during the winter months. Our shipment just arrived and we think it got here just in time.

Club-Mate Winter Edition is spiced with cinnamon, star anise, and cardamom. As the Germans describe it, "it tastes like warming up your hands in front of a fireplace after a merry snowball fight. Its unique ingredients create a taste that smoothly combines with the mate. Thus new sensory interpretations become possible."

We don't have a lot of the stuff so we're only making it available in 12-packs. You can order yours here.

 


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.

 


THE ELEVENTH HOPE VIDEOS ARE ONLINE

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.
