August 13, 1994, 7:00 pm: From the early seventies to 1983, the major source for technically "subversive" material was TAP Magazine, a publication still eagerly traded by hackers and phone phreaks today. Originally started by the Yippies and Abbie Hoffman, TAP evolved into a cornerstone for phreaks all over the world. The last editor of TAP, Cheshire Catalyst, will tell the story and answer your questions. This is where it all began.
Welcome! This is the place to go to see some real hacker culture and history. Our first four conferences (HOPE, Beyond HOPE, H2K, and H2K2) can be found in their entirety right here. Please enjoy our efforts to preserve it all and buy a DVD or two if you want a copy of anything for your personal library. We appreciate the support! Visit http://store.2600.com/videos.html to see details on the hundreds of talks from our assorted conferences, all of which will eventually be posted here.
