What the hack will get permit

by Nikola Strahija on June 13th, 2005 Dutch hacker love in What the Hack will get a permit after all for this year's convention on a campground near Boxtel in the Netherlands.

The gathering of more than 3,000 international hackers, between 28 and 31 July, faced a restriction couple of weeks ago, because the local mayor feared "breaches of law and order and danger to public safety". Now the organisers tell hack trekkies: "Ladies and gentlemen, grab your tissues to wipe away the tears of joy!"

The festival, which takes place every four years, has been running for 16 years. The event originates from a group of people that was originally centred around a small Dutch hacker magazine Hack-Tic. "Expect people from every nook and cranny of the hacker universe," the organisers promise on their website.
