Hackers On Planet Earth

I am a circumvention device.

HOPE Number SixH.O.P.E. (Hackers on Planet Earth) is semi-regular conference sponsored by 2600 Magazine, The Hacker's Quarterly. Since 1994, there have been six events held in downtown Manhattan with attendances now reaching about 3000. These conferences are major computing events where the finest hackers, phone phreaks, and net activists present papers on new findings and hold discussion panels. Non-hackers are also welcome to attend the conferences where they can learn from the "best-of-the-best". H.O.P.E. also draws top-shelf keynote speakers. Some notable addresses have been delivered by Jello Biafra, Kevin Mitnick, Steve Wozniak, and Siva Vaidhyanathan.
