July 18-20, 2008
The Hotel Pennsylvania
New York City
Hackers on Planet Earth, or HOPE, is a conference series sponsored by 2600: The Hacker Quarterly. Their web site right now simply states:
All good things...
Please share your thoughts on past events and if you plan on attending this one. As for this one being the last, we don't know. The title makes one believe that is the case. Wikipedia is never an absolute authority, but they state this:
The Last HOPE
Planned for July, 18-20 2008 at Hotel Pennsylvania
The next H.O.P.E. conference is currently in the planning stages. A notable change from past years is 2600's use of an Internet forum to facilitate community participation in the planning of the event.
It is unclear at this time if the name refers to the end of all HOPE conferences, the end of the hope that the Hotel will be saved, or something else entirely.
