PhreakNIC is a convention held yearly in Nashville, TN, usually during the month of October. This year, it will be the weekend of October 21-23, 2005, from approximately 10 AM Friday until 1 PM Sunday. Sunday is generally a wrap-up day, so please do not expect talks or events to be scheduled on Sunday.
The convention has plenty to do: expert panels, presentations, gaming, events, contests and a large costume party on Saturday night. It is an excellent opportunity to commune with other like-minded technology enthusiasts, otherwise known as hackers. It's also a great chance to show off your latest modifications and make new friends in the community.
Admission fees are $20, regardless of when you arrive. Arrive early, and if you're one of the first 300 entrants you get a neato take home gift!
Volunteers get a free t-shirt after working their shifts. To sign up online to volunteer, click here.
Lissa says: I will need a few volunteers to help with gaming after 10:00 PM on Friday and Saturday. I will have a volunteer sign up sheet at registration on Friday and Saturday. This schedule is subject to change. Please contact me if any of the times you are spotted for are not going to work for you. Thank you!!
