Friday, July 21, 2006: 10:00 pm (Area "A"): Since they began in 1987, 2600 meetings have sprung up all around the world. They inspired the movie "Hackers," helped to launch a number of federal and state investigations, provided journalists with fodder for all sorts of wild and crazy stories, and brought all sorts of hackers together who might otherwise never have met. But is this a good thing or a bad thing? Do the meetings actually strengthen the community or do they expose it to hostile elements that help to destroy it? You will hear a number of perspectives as well as stories on things that have happened at the many meetings that have taken place. If you've ever attended a 2600 meeting, we'd like to hear your feedback at this panel.

Hosted by Rop Gonggrijp, Emmanuel Goldstein, LexIcon, Others
