Notacon Press ReleasePosted April 1st, 2004
"Hackers", artists, phreaks, musicians and other techno-geeks will descend upon Cleveland in from April 23rd to April 25th for Notacon, an event that attempts to shatter all preconceived notions about what a "con" usually consists of. Besides talks, there will also be live music and DJs, world renowned digital artists as well as other standard fare such as a massive conference network, weird contests and games as well as the ability to hang out and chill with other attendees. The goal of Notacon is to "bridge the gap between art and technology" and from the looks of it, we're well on our way! Pre-registration ends soon, but badges can be had at the door the day of the event.
Notacon will include great speakers in three tracks like digital artist Laurence Gartel, HTML/CSS geek Eric Meyer, and Slashdot's own Timothy Lord. Other notable people and creative hacker types are scheduled to present during the day sessions.
In addition to the 24/7 standard hacker con setup: Network Room, Hacker Trivia, Movies, etc...Notacon boasts an impressive music lineup featuring Twine (Baltimore), Doc (Detroit) and groups from Boston's OS Collective. The event will also feature really weird contests like "Anything but Ethernet", a stage production vaguely reminiscent of what cDc tried to pull of at H2K, and your chance to take it from the shower to the stage in a "Talentless Talent Show."
Pre-registration has been extended to April 7th, but admission can be had at the door for $60. For more information, please see:
