Last "Hackers On Planet Earth" Conference In July

DeathB Re:Where will the next one be ? (102 comments)

But seriously, now that Hotel Pennsylvannia will be turned into millionaire's housing, maybe this thing can be moved to a cheaper and more accessible part of the country. Especially in light of the economy, we should focus on a place that is central and is a big Greyhound hub. Having everyone all camp out might be a bit of a stretch,
So it's not cheap, but more accessible and more of a Greyhound hub than NYC? Does such a place actually exist? NY has 3+ airports, good connections by bus and train and is central for the East Coast (which has half of the US population). Even the center of US population is right around the Mississippi.

Perhaps some people could get together to organize a complementary conference, to be held in January (cheaper travel and most time separation from the real Hope). I suggest we put it in some place like Albequerque or Los Cruces, which might be bearable at that time of year, and is generally cheap.
There are alot of hacker conferences in the US other than Defcon (Las Vegas) and HOPE (although those are the two biggest). Off the top of my head there is also Summercon (Atlanta), Notacon (Cleveland), Schmoocon (DC), Carolinacon (NC), and ToorCon (San Diego). Further abroad there is the Chaos Computer Camp in Germany. Obviously you can go off and start your own, but I'd take a careful look around first.

HOPE Announces Impressive Speakers

DeathB DeathB writes  |  more than 6 years ago

DeathB writes "The Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) Conference has announced some fairly impressive speakers today for this summer's conference. Included is Steven Levy, one of the first mainstream writers about hacker culture in Hackers: Heroes of the American Revolution; Adam Savage, the redheaded half of the Mythbusters; and Kevin Mitnick, who federal prosecutors once claimed could launch a nuclear weapon by whistling into a phone. This is on top of the RFID tracking they previously announced."
