i will be attending hope x. http://x.hope.net/. hackers on planet earth. it's a convention that takes place once every two years at the hotel pennsylvania. i am looking forward to this one. the panels should be interesting this year with snowden and all going on. also i have these two other friends that are presenting panels at hope. and finally there's steve rambam who's a private investigator and nazi hunter. he does a privacy panel at every hope i've been to. well before the previous hope, he was looking for volunteers to dig up info on. well, this year i volunteered. should be fun. heh.
