Hacker Jeopardy in German only? Wrong!

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

If this had been your question to the answer, you would have earned about -500 points for it. In fact, this year’s Hacker Jeopardy is a dual language event, but due to shortcomings in our scheduling system there is no way to reflect that kind of information. So, join us even if you don’t understand German, and be surprised by one of the funniest (or maybe the funniest) event at the Congress ever.

See you tomorrow at 23:00 in Saal 1—and bring your DECT phone!

Publishing the Timetable for the 24th Chaos Communication Congress

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

George Bradshaw
The year is 1839. The British Empire seizes Hong Kong as a base, preparing to wage war against Qing China. The world’s first commercial electric telegraph line comes into operation alongside the Great Western Railway line from Paddington station to West Drayton. And in Manchester, George Bradshaw, cartographer, printer and publisher, prepares a revolutionary publication on the recently established railways: the first ever timetable for public transportation, a cloth-bound book entitled Bradshaw’s Railway Time Tables and Assistant to Railway Travelling (the title being changed in 1840 to Bradshaw’s Railway Companion).

Bradshaw’s timetable changed the perception of technology: people suddenly realized that while a single train is extremely useful, the railways showed their full usefulness as a network of trains, interconnected as a radical new way of communication, potentially for everyone. With the first timetable, the steam age had its definitive listing of data protocol definitions and RFCs. Full steam ahead! Volldampf voraus!

168 years later, we publish our own timetable for 24C3, the 24th Chaos Communication Congress in 2007, December 27th to 30th in Berlin, Germany, Europe. May it be your useful assistant and companion to data travelling. May it whet your appetite for what we believe will be the best Congress ever.

Website is there!

Friday, November 9th, 2007

Finally. You can there find lots of information about how to participate and what to expect. Head over to the 24C3 Website-Wiki and have a look.

As the website is a wiki you can add information and edit (most of) the text. At the last events – especially the Chaos Communication Camp – many people used the wiki to plan things, let other people know about it and find others with similar interests. Please go ahead!
