The Fifth HOPE (2004): "Phone Losers of America" (DVD)
Friday, July 9, 2004: 11:00 pm (Area "B"): The PLA was created in 1994 as a general hacker/phreaker group. They eventually started PLA Magazine which in its lifetime released 46 issues (the most recent being a few months ago). The PLA has done many things over the years, including pulling pranks, operating numerous voice bridges, running their own forums (http://cal.phonelosers.org), etc. This panel will involve a discussion of the history of the PLA, what they are up to now, and the future. There will also be some videos and sound files presented along with a few "how-to" presentations.
