Press release
6 August 2001

International Conference 'Hackers at Large' in the Netherlands

The building of the network of HAL2001, the international hacker event
on the campus of the University of Twente in the Netherlands, has
begun. HAL2001 will be the biggest open-air hacker event in the world
with 2500 visitors who will sleep, work and collaborate in tents. The
conference program consists of 100 speakers from 15 countries.

The conference and festival will start officially at Friday 10th
august and will end on Sunday 12th august. The network that is being
built starting Monday 6th August has a 1 Gb uplink to the internet and
a glass fibre backbone. Every private tent on the campsite will be
connected to this network. The huge amount of computers is powered by
generators with a total capacity of 1,5 megawatts, enough for 25,000
light bulbs.

Main topics of the conference will be security, privacy, intellectual
property issues and various political issues related to computer
networking.

Some of the highlights of the conference are:

Hacker Ethics 1984 - 2001, a panel discussion with Emmanuel Goldstein
(2600), Rop Gonggrijp (Hack-Tic) and Andy Mueller-Maguhn (CCC).

Phil Zimmermann, creator of PGP, will speak about voice encryption.

A panel of security experts discusses Distributed Denial of Service
(DDoS) attacks.

John Gilmore will address copy prevention versus freedom of speech.

Drive-by-hacking, a demonstration of the poor security of wireless
networking.

Presentation by 'Mixter' of automated exploit tools.

The full program can be found at:

http://www.hal2001.org/

Hackers at Large is the sequel to the Galactic Hacker Party (1989),
Hacking at the End of the Universe (1993) en Hacking in Progress
(1997) which all took place in the Netherlands.

Subject: Multimedia: From Wagner to Virtual Reality

MULTIMEDIA: FROM WAGNER TO VIRTUAL REALITY
edited by Randall Packer and Ken Jordan
foreword by William Gibson
published by W.W. Norton, 400 pp., $27.95
publication date: July 23, 2001 (US); Sept. 19, 2001 (UK)


"This book is one start toward a different sort of history.... I recommend
this book to you with an earnestness that I have seldom felt for any
collection of historic texts.  This is, in large part, where the bodies
are buried.  Assembled in this way, in such close proximity, these visions
give off strange sparks." - from the foreword by William Gibson

MULTIMEDIA: FROM WAGNER TO VIRTUAL REALITY presents the untold history
behind the interfaces, links, and interactivity we all take for granted
today. This groundbreaking work traces a fertile and fascinating series of
collaborations between the arts and the sciences, going back to the years
just after World War II -- and even further, to composer Richard Wagner,
whose ideas about the immersive nature of music theater foreshadowed the
experience of virtual reality.

Among the essential articles gathered in the book are the Futurists' 1916
manifesto on cinema, which declared that the new medium would unite all
media and replace the book; Vannevar Bush's 1945 Atlantic Monthly essay
tha= t leads directly to the hyperlinks in today's multimedia; J.C.R.
Licklider's groundbreaking idea in 1960 that people and computers could
collaborate in creative work; Nam June Paik's 1984 essay proposing that
satellite technology would encourage a global information art; Tim
Berners-Lee's 1989 proposal for a document-sharing network, which became
the basis of the Worl= d Wide Web; and William Gibson's discussion of how
he came up with the word "cyberspace." With an insightful introduction to
the volume and critical commentaries on each article, editors Randall
Packer and Ken Jordan lead us through the groundbreaking developments of
the multimedia story.

The book publication completes a unique hybrid publication project that
joins W.W. Norton with Intel Corporation's ArtMuseum.net, to present an
untold history of multimedia.  The book and the Web site, which was
launche= d in June, 2000, are meant to work in tandem. On-line,
MULTIMEDIA: FROM WAGNE= R TO VIRTUAL REALITY is a dynamic, growing
resource featuring hyperlinked texts and a wealth of multimedia
documentation. Please visit the site at http://www.artmuseum.net.


>From the early reviews:

"The best guide yet on a subject of central importance to anyone
interested in the future of media, and the growing marriage between art
and science....The collection is historically significant, given that
nobody ha= s ever woven together the different threads, thoughts and
impulses that becom= e multimedia, a new form both of media and
culture.... The book flows skillfully from one idea to the next, each
section building on the one that preceded it." - Jon Katz, Slashdot

"In the Norton Anthology tradition, Packer and Jordan bring together
semina= l contributions that artists and scientists have made to the field
of computer-human interaction... An evocative whirlwind tour through 100
years of work... Excellent..." - S. Joy Mountford, Wired

"[MULTIMEDIA is] a key source book in the field of art, science and
technology. This book is excellent in all respects." - Annick Bureaud,
Leonardo Digital Reviews

"Readers interested in the history of multimedia should be enthralled by
this collection of hard-to-find essays.... A remarkable blending of past
an= d present, these essays remind us that today's wondrous inventions
didn't jus= t spring into existence out of nothingness." - Booklist

 STOP STAR WARS
 STOP THE AMERICAN MISSILE SHIELD
 Wednesday 22 August
 At the American Consulate in Amsterdam, Museumplein
 19, 3 o'clock.
 Organized by the Jungle Association of Autonomous
 Astronauts

 The National Missile Defence system (NMD), which the
 American government is planning to built in order to defend
 themselves against miniature 'rogue-states' like
 North-Korea proves once again the high amount of
 slapstick present in the rhetoric of George W. Bush.
 He may be evil but he is still a lousy Darth Vader.
 Darth Vader, for all his sins, expressed
 himself in an intelligible manner, looked a great deal
 better and even posessed of a more coherent
 ideology. The missile system, however, is nothing more than
 sentimental machismo from frustrated cowboys: Bush
 bragging to Vladimir Putin he has got the largest
 (rocket).

 The expensive refuelling of the Cold War this missile
 shield is promising to offer, left aside (Greenpeace
 has taken upon this issue fairly decent), the Jungle
 Association of Autonomous Astronauts is organising
 this demonstration to protest the reality that every nation
 with the power to do so can use space for military
 uses without consulting the 'people'.
 Even though space aviation has always been part of
 military policies, secretely forcing the political
 processes at the background, this NMD plan is a slap in the
 face of everybody who believes in the possibility of a
 peaceful, democratic and creative space aviation.

 It all started so gloriously. Assuring to fulfil all
 promises made by science fiction, the official space
 travel agencies have become black holes. Boring
 scientist who have to battle with military and commerce
 for room and financial back-up, all proposing their own
 mediocre short termed projects.
 There can be no doubt that if we have to wait for them,
 it will take at least another century before the first
 civilian astronauts will get their chance to travel among
 the stars. This demonstration is targeted not solemnly
 to this Missile Defence System but also against the
 political processes which are at the background of it:
 the conspiracy of nameless technocrats who are
 operating within the shadows of their back offices
 without bothering about the consequences or
 moral problems which are connected to the abuse of
 space in the interest of an elite.

 Demonstrate with us in favour of a democratic
 independent space aviation.
 Demonstrate with us Against the National Missile
 Defence system.
 Bring your own sound system to this Demonstration

 For more information we refer you to the Jungle
 Association of Autonomous Astronauts website:
 www.socialfiction.org/jungleaaa
 or contact us by e-mail: jungleaaa {AT} socialfiction.org

 The Jungle Association of Autonomous Astronauts takes
 part in a worldwide network of groups dedicated by
 building their own spaceships.
 Space travel should be available to all.

V2_Lab: Jheronimus Bosch Adventure Game

The =91Jheronimus Bosch Adventure Game=92 made by V2_Lab in collaboration=
 with=20 Ra.nj digital entertainment and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in
Rotterdam= =20 is now operational on http://www.BoschUniverse.com from
there follow the=20 link to the =91Bosch Game=92.

Context: The Jheronimus Bosch web project is set up as part of the major
exhibition= =20 (1 September 11 November) in the Boijmans Van Beuningen
Museum. The=20 website aims to open up the the oeuvre of the celebrated
painter Jheronimus Bosch (ca. 1450-1516) for=20 different target groups.
Additional to the general information on the work= =20 and life of Bosch,
on the website (created by ZaPPWeRK) a spectacular=20 =91Jheronimus Bosch
Adventure Game=92 is featured, which has been=
 co-developed=20 by V2_Lab.

Short description game: The =91Jheronimus Bosch Adventure Game=92 is a
modern-day variant of Bosch's= =20 painted fantasies. The game is set in a
decor of images from the Boschian=20 world, wherefore the famous painting
=91The Pedlar=92 and the =91Tabletop=
 with=20 the Seven Deadly Sins=92 has served as points of departure. One
or more=20 players can play the game on the Internet at the same time. In
the=20 adventure game several difficult missions have to be accomplished
on the=20 fly. This all happens in a series of small games. The challenge
is to find= =20 a balance between =91surviving=92 and the =91good
living=92, but it=92s also=
 of major=20 importance to stay healthy in dark middle ages. Because at
the end of the=20 game the last judgement will be passed by Jheronimus

Genre: The internet game is an online multi-user learning and adventure
game. It=20 is possible to play this game by several players

results will be encountered for each single user= =20 individually.

Target group: The target group of the game consists of youngsters aged
12-17 years. This= =20 however doesn=92t exclude others, but the point of
departure in the game is= =20 targeting this group.

Design: The environment is based on the paintings of Jheronimus Bosch and

players. Each player can somehow influence the world because=20 the traces
of each player are being spread all over the game. Apart from=20 the
synchronous meeting several other communication options have been=20
