What is PhreakNIC?

PhreakNIC is Nashville's annual hacker con. Anyone is welcome to attend. We create an environment where people who are interested in the more underground elements of technology can meet, exchange ideas and hopefully teach/learn. The primary focus is on computers and computer security, but we also cover other topics, such as radio (ham, pirate & low-power/community), SETI work, robotics, high-power rocketry, satellites, phones and phreaking, cryptography, etc. PhreakNIC is organized annually by Nashville 2600 a non-profit organization.

Pre-Registration is available again through click and pledge at If you pre-register this year please use the "Customize your con badge" link in the menu to submit your visage/logo for your badge. This will be our fifteenth year and we hope you will make plans to join us.

Please, please, please use a different browser. Internet Explorer is garbage for the most part. I did minimal testing of this site with IE and frankly I just don't care enough to make it work. Use ANYTHING else to view this site Opera, Safari, Firefox or Chrome. This isn't an anti-Microsoft rant either, it's a standards rant.
Notlarry wanted a link that said blah blah blah
"Special" words from the president coming here soon.
