The Next Hope, the latest installment of the Hackers On Planet Earth conference organized by 2600: The Hacker Quarterly, takes place July 16-18 at the Hotel Pennsylvania (which is still at risk of being destroyed) in New York City.
Keynote speakers include Dan Kaminsky and Julian Assange of Wikileaks, however it is possible Julian may not be able to attend due to the fact that he is a target of the United States government. Here’s more info on how to register for HOPE.
Here’s an explanation of the hackable OpenAMD RFID Attendee Meta-Data system that will be embedded in the attendee badges this year at HOPE.
Our friend Jason Scott will be doing a screening and discussion of “Get Lamp” at HOPE, his new documentary on text adventure games, a film I’m really looking forward to seeing.
