> "What The Hack?" (WTH) is a large hacker's festival been organized
> (http://www.whatthehack.org). WTH is part of a interesting series of
> events held every four years in The Netherlands. The events are known
> as a
> great opportunity to meet others working on the same things. It started
> with "The Galactic Hacker Party", also known as the "International
> Conference on the Alternative use of Technology, Amsterdam". Since then
> the festival moved outdoors, and the next three editions were held on a
> large field. The last edition was visited by nearly 3000 people.
> enjoy exploring the details and capabilities of tech-systems or engage
> with technology on the basis of a do-it- yourself philosophy.
> Contrary to
> popular misconception hackers do not, by definition, break into
> The festival will be taking place between July 28th and 31th July, 2005
> in a camp near Den Bosch, The Netherlands. Common themes are freedom of
> speech, government transparency, computer insecurity, privacy, open
> software, open standards & software patents and community networking.
> Call for presentations and workshops
> Another focus has to do with independent media and networking in crisis
> areas and so called developing countries, which goals and objectives
> ** Bringing together and building links between technical people of
> different backgrounds and countries. Involve young professionals from
> Eastern Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa in this broad
> international event. Creating opportunities for hackers to think about
> how they can help in the distribution of technology, support
> media and so on.
> ** Show projects on the forefront of creative network development and
> use of new media.
> ** Share practical knowledge, skills and experiences in wireless
> technology, open spectrum, open technologies and free software.
> ** Make use of the power of a large group of technical people. One idea
> is setting up a meshing experiment. Meshing is a way to self-organize
> wireless networks. Up till now, nobody really knows how well it scales
> to lots of users. A massive mesh experiment using thousands of laptops
> on the camp can give some answers. If necessary, it's a challenge to
> to improve the Wifi protocol so that it will scale.
> ** Discuss global topics like Open Access/Content issues, freedom of
> speech or Internet Governance.
