After literally decades of trying to make it to one of 2600 Magazine’s legendary HOPE (Hackers on Planet Earth) events, held every two years in NYC, I will be coming to town this year for it — and giving one of the keynotes.


HOPE is in the pantheon of great information security, electronic privacy and digital rights conferences, with DEFCON in Vegas and CCC in Hamburg. Last year, Snowden keynoted.

Tickets are for sale now — and the conference has a history of selling out, so be warned!

There’s also an open call for speakers — and you can always volunteer.

The Eleventh HOPE seeks proposals for content and activities to make this the most amazing HOPE event ever. HOPE encourages all approaches and interpretations to hacking: hackers, makers, developers, teachers, learners, and experimenters. If you have a passion for discovering how things work and sharing that knowledge, you have the hacker spirit.

Some of the topics from past HOPE events have included:

*
social engineering

*
culture jamming

*
outer space

*
science and math

*
globalization

*
hacker ethos and lifestyles

*
food, medicine, and your body

*
bio hacking

*
robotics

*
censorship

*
whistleblowing

*
phones and beyond

*
technology threats and opportunities

*
and much, much more
