The DVDs from HOPE Number Nine are now available! There are no region restrictions or DRM of any sort, so you're free to make copies and spread these around to preserve the history.
Your purchases here help to support these efforts and make our archiving projects possible. At $5 a disc, this isn't a bad deal by any stretch of the imagination. And if you buy the entire set, you get a really amazing price. We also have 128 kbps audio available of every talk on a special two-disc DVD set for those who have want an audio record of the entire conference or who have no interest in seeing what people look like.
HOPE Number Nine was held at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City July 13-15, 2012. Our keynotes were The Yes Men and NSA whistleblower William Binney. Our speaker rooms were named after railway engineer Olive Dennis, the late hacker Len Sassaman, the world's first female operator Emma Nutt, and computer engineer Lee Felsenstein.
[This also includes a free hacker passport for every two DVDs ordered. These passports served as our badges at HOPE Number Nine. They are so authentic that they can easily be mistaken for real passports. (Do NOT attempt to fool customs agents as they have a very limited sense of humor and have already found out about these.) Each passport is 24 pages in length, contains text pertaining to the HOPE Number Nine conference, has an anonymous hacker ID page, and proudly displays the DHS logo on the front (that's Department of HOPEland Security). In addition, there are multiple visa pages for you to collect stamps from other hacker conferences (assuming they're cool enough to have stamps in the first place). These pages also contain the logos of more than a dozen hackerspaces and organizations. This is truly a collector's item for anyone interested in hacker history.]
