HOPE developments

Rob @ 4:03 PM

We at The Last HOPE are excited to announce the first wave of confirmed speakers at our conference.

  • Steven Levy, author of "Hackers: Heroes of the American Revolution" and tech columnist for Newsweek.
  • Steven Rambam, noted private investigator and privacy expert who was memorably arrested minutes before his talk at HOPE Number Six, on charges which turned out to be completely unfounded.
  • Adam Savage, artist, proponent of the scientific method, self-described "maker of things," and co-host of MythBusters.
  • Jello Biafra, activist, ex-Dead-Kennedy, and HOPE tradition.
  • Kevin Mitnick, hacker, security consultant, and HOPE mainstay.

The Last HOPE will take place in New York City's Hotel Pennsylvania from July 18-20, and is expected to feature over 100 talks on four tracks.
