PhreakNIC is an annual gathering in Nashville, TN, for hackers, makers,
security professionals, and general technology enthusiasts. Hours upon hours
of both informative and entertaining presentations are given by volunteers
and many areas are set up with the intent of encouraging socialization. In
our 11th year, we are now the longest running non-commercial hacker convention
in the United States.* PhreakNIC is organized by the Nashville 2600
Organization, which is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible charity. However, it takes
many resources to organize, and help is given to PhreakNIC by other 2600
groups in the South East United States, as well as the Nashville Linux Users
Group. Our thanks go out to all who contribute.
* According to our research. Summercon is older, but hasn't
always been in the US, so it doesn't count. Pumpcon is also possibly older,
but neither their site nor wikipedia have an archive to peruse.
The 11th Annual PhreakNIC (PN0x0b) will be held from Friday, October 19, 2007
through Sunday, October 21,2007 at the Days Inn Stadium in Nashville, TN. This
is fifth year in the same hotel.
I rarely get the dates for these things early. I've got this one penciled in. Go to the PhreakNIC web site for more info.
