hacking in progress"hacking in progress" 1997 was a 3 days hacker convention on a camping site near amsterdam. there met about 1500 people from around the world. they brought with them their tents and computers to connect them to a temporarily network - though the social networking was surely the most important!
main organizers: maurice wessling and rop gonggrijp. and many, many, many others did very important things.
"you always have the feeling in each tent there can happening something you'd like to see."
"hip is a place where we want people to come together to network themselves, not only in a technical sense, but also in a social sense.
we'd like to show people the social and technical problems concerning the internet - show them, that the technical and the political thing are the both sides of the same coin."
