06.02.08 SECURITY EXPERTS TO DISCLOSE MAJOR FLAWS AFFECTING OVER 95% OF ALL LOCKS
This summer, hackers from around the world will be teaming up with lock picking and security experts to show the public exactly how insecure their locks are. Recent studies have proven that locks of all varieties (including so-called "high security" locks) can be compromised, some by persons with a minimal skill.

06.05.08 THE LAST HOPE TO FEATURE HACKER RADIO
At The Last HOPE conference, hackers will broadcast their minds and their iPods.

In the center of the summer's top hacker event will be a small isolation booth. "Radio Statler!" as the station is called, will send out a three day broadcast of all-original material. From the center of Manhattan, around the clock, discussions of the past, present, and future of technology, creativity, and humanity itself will be transmitted.

06.06.08 ADDITIONAL SPEAKERS ANNOUNCED FOR LAST HOPE CONFERENCE
We are in full swing in the speaker selection and scheduling part of The Last HOPE. What follows is the next installment of our list of confirmed speakers and the presentations they will be giving at the conference. We have accepted many more and will be listing some of those in the next week. Since we've added a new track this year, we've been able to keep the submission process open rather late. But this will soon be coming to an end. June 15th is the absolute cutoff for speaker submissions. If you want to give a scheduled talk at The Last HOPE, you must submit it to speakers@hope.net by that date.

You can do so either online or by calling +1 (212) 736-5000. You may (or may not) also be able to find better rates by dealing with travel agents, online hotel consolidators, and the like.

    06.29.08 HOPE PREREGISTRATION ENDING FOR OVERSEAS ATTENDEES
    June 30 is the last day for preregistration for The Last HOPE conference for all overseas attendees. As we can't guarantee that the price at the door will be the same as the price being offered now, we suggest people who are coming from overseas preregister for the conference ASAP so your tickets don't arrive after you've already left.
