Hackers On Planet Earth

HOPE 11 block
Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) is a biennial hacker conference in New York City, organized by many people involved with 2600: The Hacker Quarterly.

I have been attending and volunteering since HOPE2K in 2000, and have presented panels since The Fifth HOPE in 2004. Beginning with The Last HOPE in 2008, I joined HOPE's core staff. I also contribute art and design work, and I began serving as an on-stage coordinator and emcee beginning with HOPE Number Nine in 2012. Beginning with the 2014 HOPEX conference, I took on art directing as well.

The eleventh HOPE took place July 22-24, 2016 in Manhattan. More information about HOPEs past, present, and future can be found at the event's Wikipedia entry and the official HOPE site.
