    Who: se2600 (Nashville/Atlanta hackers) What: a weekend of hacking, panel
    discussions, partying and other mayhem Where: Drury Inn south, I-24 and
    Harding Place, Nashville TN, 615.834.7170 When: 30 October - 01 November Why:
    why not?
    Greetings! This is the initial invitation to and announcement for PhreakNIC, a
    convention for hackers, phone phreaks, cypherpunks, programmers, civil
    libertarians, ham/scanner enthusiasts and culture jammers. Not one of the
    above? No prob. Network engineers, ISP owners, sysops, security consultants,
    the generally curious and (especially) those who want to learn about some of
    the more "underground" elements of our technological culture are all
    encouraged to attend. We're even inviting a few feds.
    The con starts 3:00pm Friday and runs nonstop until noon Sunday; there
    may be a few additional events afterwards, so check our contact site at
    http://se2600.org/phreaknic on a regular basis. There will be live djs,
    films and videos, a series of lectures and panel discussions from 1:00pm
    to 6:00pm Saturday, a costume party and mini-rave Halloween evening, and
    numerous informal tech talks and demos. We're also providing space to the
    Nashville Linux User's Group for a Saturday install-fest and swap meet.  
    A computer network will be set up early Friday for a weekend-long session of
    r00t wars. The goal will be to hack into as many LOCAL machines as possible
    and take them over, while preventing the same from happening to you.
    Participants will learn a LOT about internet and network security. Bring you
    own ethernet/RJ45 equipped computer(s); the network will be TCP/IP.
    Why are we doing this?
    A very wise man once said "Don't get mad at the media, BECOME the media!"
    We see this as a chance to dispel many of the misconceptions and outright lies
    spread by certain greedy corporations (especially those in the
    telecommunications industry) about our subculture, expose the bad laws their
    lobbyists sponsor and our politicians pass (usually over the protests of
    experts), and chastise the mainstream media for frequently poor and biased
    reporting (and for perverting the word "hacker", which was a complement up
    until the 80's). Assuming anyone wants to listen, that is...
    It's also an excuse for a big party Halloween weekend. See ya there!
    PS - Did we mention that its free?
