||AN INVITATION TO ALL 2600 MEETINGS|
We're less than two months away from HOPE Number Six (July 21, 22, 23, 2006) and we'd like to get a record amount of participation from 2600 meetings all around the world.
||SOME TRAVEL TIPS FOR HOPE ATTENDEES|
Do you want more than anything in the world to be able to make it to this year's HOPE conference but are worried that you won't be able to afford the airfare? We've compiled a handy reference guide with all sorts of valuable information over at the HOPE blog. You can even share your own experiences and ask questions.
||HOPE NETWORK TO BE BIGGEST EVER |
We're happy to announce that the connectivity at this year's HOPE conference will be the fastest we've ever had - and likely the fastest of any hacker conference ever in the States. Our network team has been hard at work making all of this possible. We have been assured of connectivity equivalent to an OC3 connection for the entire weekend. That's more than 30 times what we had for The Fifth HOPE! This will make all sorts of projects possible as well as make it much simpler for HOPE attendees to stay connected.
||VENDOR TABLES NOW AVAILABLE AT HOPE CONFERENCE|
We're making available a number of tables for folks who want to be able to display or sell their wares at HOPE Number Six. These tables will be located in a highly-trafficked area of the second floor. We hope that a variety of groups will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to reach our attendees, and that our attendees will be able to see some neat products they might not otherwise get to know about.
||HOPE RIDE BOARD NOW UP AND RUNNING|
Are you looking for a way to get to HOPE this summer? We've just launched our HOPE Ride Board on the HOPE Wiki. Using it is very simple - just look for people in your state or province to share rides with. If your location is empty, be the first to fill it in with your details. It's a great way to save money, meet people, and make the ride go a lot faster.
||2600 MOUSEPADS NOW AVAILABLE|
The long-awaited 2600 mousepads are now available on our online store. They have the same design as our 2600 sweatshirts! That's right, they're round mousepads that look like a government seal.
It's a really cool thing to have sitting by your computer.
It's the perfect gift.
It's a really cruel joke to leave one at someone's workstation when you know their boss wouldn't approve.
The possibilities are limitless.
||HOPE PREREGISTRATION ENDING SOON - EUROS, CREDIT CARDS WILL BE ACCEPTED|
As HOPE Number Six draws closer, so does the date when we have to close preregistration to ensure that everyone gets their tickets in time. In the United States and Canada, preregistration will end on Monday, July 10. For all other parts of the world, preregistration ends on Friday, June 30.
