23 September 2019, 11:00 am

This has been ages in the making, but we finally have a fairly comprehensive list of places to buy paper copies of 2600 in the United States. Just click here, pick your state, and you're all set! We've included contact info so you can call them in advance to see if they're sold out. If you know of a store that should be carrying us, please let us know by clicking here.

We will be adding Canadian stores in the near future.

FULL ARCHIVE OF ALL HOPE CONFERENCES NOW AVAILABLE
10 September 2019, 11:24 am

We've finally done it. Our digitizing project involving all of the HOPE conferences is complete. You can now get all talks from any conference on flash drives or download individual talks in high quality video with no DRM restrictions.

But the big news is that we've now introduced a mega archive of every single recorded talk from every single conference. You'll get six 128GB flash drives chock full of the highest quality MP4 files from each of our 12 conferences starting in 1994 and going until 2018. For those times when you just want to hear the talks, we're also including high fidelity MP3 files. And each conference comes with its own HTML navigation page so you never get lost.

All of the files are easy to copy and can be played on just about any device capable of playing audio and video. Between this and the recently released full archive of 2600 Hacker Digest editions, this has truly been the summer of digitization.

FULL SETS OF THE HACKER DIGEST AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME
3 September 2019, 11:41 am

With the release of Volume 24 of The Hacker Digest, we have now completed the digitizing project that covers ALL of our back issues. This massive undertaking has been underway for the better part of a decade and we're thrilled to finally be able to offer digital lifetime subscribers a full library of back issues. We've also learned how fascinating it is to dive into this historic collection of hacker history, including additional summations of the significant events of each year, plus detailed explanations of each cover and the many hidden messages and oddities contained within every issue of 2600.

You can click here to receive the entire collection of 2600 back issues in the form of 35 annual Hacker Digests and receive every annual digest released every spring from now into infinity.

Click here to buy Volume 24.

If you also want paper copies, we have a special offer here. And if you're an existing paper lifetime subscriber who wants to upgrade to digital at a discounted rate, just click here.


THE LATEST ON HOPE
29 August 2019, 1:06 pm

It's been about a month since we shared the news of the crisis we're facing regarding future HOPE conferences, as Hotel Pennsylvania announced a tripling of their rates, which would make the conference unaffordable for many of our attendees and, thus, not something we'd want to pursue.

Since then, we have received hundreds of emails from people who have attended previous HOPE conferences, people who have never been to one, a sizable number who have presented talks, panels, and workshops at HOPE over the years, and so many others in the community. The vast majority of these emails contained really positive and inspirational messages, along with some very good suggestions on how HOPE can continue.

We're still processing all of this and we've been hard at work pursuing the options with the most potential. You have our promise that we will leave no stone unturned in the quest for the next incarnation of HOPE, one that will continue the magic of the first twelve. We can't thank you enough for the kind messages of support so many of you have sent, along with the reminders of how much this event really means.

Please continue to forward us your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions. The address to email is hope@hope.net. We expect the month ahead to be pivotal. As soon as we have news to report, we will share it here.


DIGITAL UPDATE - IT'S THE HOME STRETCH
2 August 2019, 1:56 am

This summer, we've been making steady progress towards completing our digital archive, both for the magazine and the HOPE conferences. It's been a long time coming.

Volume 35 of The Hacker Digest is now complete and available in a variety of digital formats. This is a special book format compilation of the issues of 2600 from 2018. It comes with enhanced photography and an explanation of all the covers. You can get it in PDF or EPUB format, each completely DRM-free. It's also available for the Kindle and the Nook. Click this link to see all the options.

This leaves us with only one year to encode (Volume 24 from 2007) which will be completed later this month. If you want to be among those who get ALL of the published digests, past, present, and future, then consider the lifetime option.

We reached another milestone this month by making one more of our conferences available digitally. This time it was The Fifth HOPE from 2004, which you can now get on flash drive (full set) and as downloadable MP4s (individually). (We're sorry this took so long, but every time we started to encode one of them, we just couldn't stop watching it.)

This project will also conclude this month when we encode the last remaining conference. You can explore everything that's available here as well as on YouTube (but be prepared to become highly annoyed with their limitations and restrictions every time someone even thinks of something that's copywritten).

We're honored to be able to preserve and share all of this history. Please help support our efforts so we can make more of it.

 


THE FUTURE OF HOPE
29 July 2019, 10:52 am

Many of you have noticed the graphic that's appeared on the HOPE website recently. There is meaning behind it.

While beginning preparations for the next HOPE conference, we were stunned to hear of the plan to triple the cost to us from the hotel. This would pretty much make HOPE impossible, at least not without it becoming the kind of conference we never wanted. The purpose of HOPE is to make the world of hackers and technology accessible, and that means affordable. We could become one of those corporate events that charge thousands of dollars. But we would never feel as proud of what we're able to create with the hacker community every two years.

This crisis gets worse as much of 2600's revenue comes from sales at the conference. Losing HOPE, combined with the ever-increasing challenge of printing an advertiser-free publication in a world of vanishing bookstores and rising costs, could paint a very dire picture for us.

No doubt that prospect fills many powerful entities with glee, as we've taken great pride in being the right thorns in the right sides for over 35 years. That alone is reason to fight this with every ounce of strength we can summon.

We've been sued, we've been threatened, and we've faced extinction on a number of occasions. And one thing we've learned is that times like these are when this community truly shines. We don't intend to be defeated by this and we have no intention of giving up on the prospects of HOPE in 2020. But we can't do it by magic.

And so we call on you to put forth ideas, suggestions, and opinions. How important is HOPE to you? Do you know of a better place where we can host it? How can we come up with ways to make the event even better? Does HOPE have to be in a hotel? Does HOPE need to be in Manhattan? Etc.

There are many things to think of and to brainstorm about. And there is no better group to turn to at a time like this for inspiration and new ideas. Time and again, it's right when we're supposed to be at our lowest that we come back stronger than ever, precisely because of our community's creativity, intelligence, and refusal to give up. Please send your thoughts to hope@hope.net and be a part of history. Because we're not going to let this stop us.

 


SUMMER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED
9 July 2019, 12:43 pm

It's summer once more and the Summer issue of 2600 is out. If you subscribe to us, then an issue could very well already be in your possession. If you want to become a part of that elite group of people, just click here and actual physical issues that last forever will start coming your way. (You can also use that link to renew an existing subscription.) If you can find a bookstore, then you can probably find us inside of one, as well as at many magazine stands. And you can always go the digital route. If you have a Kindle, it's easy to subscribe in both the U.S. and U.K. (Individual issues are available elsewhere.) We're also available on the Barnes and Noble Nook. You can also subscribe worldwide via the Google Newsstand app. Visit our digital edition guide to see what's available in the many formats we offer.


OUR FOURTH HOPE CONFERENCE IS NOW COMPLETELY DIGITIZED (TWO TO GO)
17 June 2019, 11:16 am

It's not like we were sitting on this for the past 17 years. Technology was different back in 2002 and people wanted videotapes and DVDs of this historic conference. And since then, we've been terribly busy on all of our projects. But getting our entire series of conferences into digital form has always been on one of our back burners. And now we can add 2002's H2K2 conference to the finished pile.

For the first time, you can download MP4s of individual talks or get a flash drive with every recorded talk from this historic conference. It's all at the highest quality (for the time), without copy restrictions of any sort and no YouTube censorship.

We intend to continue this project over the summer with the remaining two non-digitized conferences. You can explore all of what's available here and on YouTube (with their restrictions and limitations).
