JELLO BIAFRA H2K KEYNOTE SPEECH NOW ONLINE
It took us long enough but we finally have started sorting through the many hours of H2K material. Over the next few weeks, audio transcripts of many sessions will be posted here. Videos will also be available soon.
The Jello Biafra keynote speech took place on Saturday, July 15, 2000. In this historic cultural exchange between the punk rock icon/free speech activist and the hacker community, Jello manages to draw powerful connections despite not having any actual computer experience. He addresses issues such as corporate control of the media, the presidential election, censorship, the future of the Internet, Napster, pirate radio, online activism, and hackers.
Excerpts from this speech will be appearing on the new Jello Biafra CD, due out this month.
H2K A SMASHING SUCCESS
We'll post more details as we start to recover but the short story is that the H2K conference exceeded all of our expectations, both in attendance and overall enjoyment. We had more than 2300 attendees, a very well received and varied speaker schedule, a working ethernet and link to the Internet (thanks to nac.net and the techs at Bell Atlantic who came through and broke their asses to help us out), and virtually no trouble of any kind either at the conference or the hotel. It's very likely we'll be able to do something like this again sooner rather than later because of all the good that was generated. Look for more details, summations, pictures, etc. as we pull ourselves together (remember, we also have a trial to deal with). Thanks to EVERYONE who helped make H2K happen!
