Hacking Planet Earth

"...the fifth annual Hackers on Planet Earth gathering... where attendees discussed computers, control, privacy and politics."


Also under discussion at the conference were fun ways to harass spammers. Some even discussed plans to build a Hogwarts for Hackers -- a national security college that would teach young adults security skills like lock picking, encryption, rewriting software in cars, running pirate radio stations and building nanotech labs from things stashed in the closet or basement.
