H2K - HOPE (Hackers on Planet Earth)
Speakers and Panels

HOPE 2000
Hackers On Planet Earth
2000 July 14 - 16


Update: 11/1/00

It took us long enough but we finally have started sorting through the many hours of H2K material. Over the next few weeks, audio transcripts of many sessions will be posted here. Videos will also be available soon.

The Jello Biafra keynote speech took place on Saturday, July 15, 2000. In this historic cultural exchange between the punk rock icon/free speech activist and the hacker community, Jello manages to draw powerful connections despite not having any actual computer experience. He addresses issues such as corporate control of the media, the presidential election, censorship, the future of the Internet, Napster, pirate radio, online activism, and hackers.

Excerpts from this speech will be appearing on the new Jello Biafra CD, due out this month.

Dear Richard,

I am still travelling away from home, but I anticipate making a
public-access Cable TV production with my footage and any other volunteered
footage. If you find out about other people with video footage, please have
them send me a VHS or S-VHS copy to:

This web page is curated by The Cheshire Catalyst as a repository for "Electronic Press Clippings" of the kind done for the Cheshire Catalyst's Beyond Hope Page in 1997 for the Beyond Hope Conference. The last one was done sort of "spur of the moment", and wound up being where Emmanuel Goldstein linked to from the 2600.Com web site. Since I've found my "niche" in the HOPE (Hackers On Planet Earth) Conference hierarchy (especially as I live in Florida, and can't otherwise help in preparation for the event), I do my small bit here to help out.

If you know of a news story or article about H2K on the net, please e-mail the web address.
