It's true - not only did we sell out our entire conference block at the
Hotel Pennsylvania but now the entire hotel is sold out! But there are
still quite a few options in the neighborhood, ranging from cheap to
unbelievably expensive. We've detailed a few of them at
http://www.thelasthope.org/travel_more-hotels.php and there are many
more to be found. An ongoing discussion of options is also taking place
at our online forum at http://talk.hope.net/viewforum.php?id=26
We're less than three weeks away from the hacker event of the year! We
look forward to seeing you in New York City July 18-20 for The Last HOPE!
