We hear NFTs have become very popular. Had we known, we could have cashed in our trademark NFTs and made some serious "cha-ching!"...

...but then they wouldn't be "Nerds Freely Talking" ("Freely" as in "cha-ching!").

Replentish your NFT reserves tomorrow! See 2600.nyc for details.

This year's April Fool RFCs sucked.
Make up for it by hanging around with NYC2600 tomorrow night.

See 2600.nyc for all the juicy details.

If there really were some conspiracy behind these COVID vaccines, then we'd've told you "Let the nanorobots connect you over 5G to our meeting on Microsoft Teams"...
(By the way, don't wear tinfoil hats: it makes targeting you with the Jewish space lasers much easier.)

Snowed in? Hang out! Meet the friendly igloo-weller in your network neighborhood at NYC2600!

See 2600.nyc for further details; use only as directed; consult a doctor if virtual meeting exceeds 3 hours.

Friends! Hackers! All o'youse! Listen to me: we gonna bury 2020 and NEVER reboot it.
Once your hangover is gone, head on over to 2600.nyc/

It's that time again!
[ spins wheel:wheel, lands on "reboot" ]
♩...here's the domain-y!♩


STOP the X=X+1 and forget about the RETURNs with NYC2600 tonight!

What would be more appropriate than to compile the leaked source code of build 2600 while attending tonight's NYC2600 meeting?
(Getting "The Knock" while doing so, I suppose...)

Unlike Nintendo, 2600 has been here for over 35 years, meets every 35 days (roughly), will not delete itself in 35 weeks after purchase, *and* is conveniently convening right now - no release date!

So why not cut the online class and join the cool kids poppin' shells behind the gym?

See 2600.nyc for all your education and entertainment needs!

We interrupt your Hacker Summer Camp-in to remind you that DEFCON was cancelled, so you really don't have a valid excuse to miss out on NYC2600. nyc2600.net/2020/08/04/nyc2600 Come on in and hang out in the (also-cancelled) lobby!

If, in the course of Hacker Events, it becomes necessary for one user to distance the physical presences which have connected them with another, a decent respect to the customs of Hackerkind requires that they should adapt to causes which impel them to the separation.

This, we have done.


There's a germ going around that causes people to lose track of what day it is. It's called chronovirus...

(...and your present interlocutor who is in the habit of identifying by use of the perpendicular pronoun has indeed contracted it.)

Join others who may (or may not) have fallen victim to this and other terrible diseases (such as hackery) as NYC2600 once again goes online!

Details at 2600.nyc and kudos to @Rob_T_Firefly

[ one month later ]
...so I guess we're going to find out how many hackers live in their mother's basement after all.

Slackers can join the co-isolation unit set up by @XioNYC at NYC2600.slack.com or you can Zoom on over to meeting ID 519-563-457 hosted by our very own @Rob_T_Firefly

We're not stopping because of coronavirus. Some of us *make* viruses!

Share your infectious hacker spirit tomorrow at The Atrium at 875 Third Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets): take 🅔, 🅜, or ➏ to Lexington Av-53 Street Station; M101, M102, or M103 bus. 2600.nyc

There will be no witnesses, no questions, no documents, and no doubt.

Now that you've heard them all, why not share them with a bunch of people who have also had more than their fill of dumb "2020" jokes? Miss out and you'll regret it... in hindsight.

We are gathered at The Atrium tomorrow to bid farewell to BIOS after 45 years of servicing all the basic ins and outs that you've come to take for granted.

Come to 875 Third Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets) as we present BIOS with a golden pocketwatch...

(Who are we kidding? It's just a CR-2032 to power its RTC until it too drops dead from digital deprecation!)

Take 🅔, 🅜, or ➏ to Lexington Av-53 Street Station; M101, M102, or M103 bus.

Today is the perfect day to take on the challenge and snap some royalty-free stock photos of * in their natural environment - i.e., knocking on ports at random hoping to hit a sweet jackpot... (Good thing they haven't invented "trick or treat, xor ransom!")

Show off your "best" tomorrow starting from 5PM at The Atrium (875 Third Avenue between 53rd and 54th Streets)
🅔, 🅜, or ➏ to Lexington Av-53 Street Station; M101, M102, or M103 bus

Re: the sudden closure of @HackerRadioShow home WBAI, we have a statement posted at 2600.com/content/lockout-wbai- .

We've arranged a live "Off the Hook" for 7-9 PM this Wednesday the 9th, at the Brooklyn Commons Cafe downstairs from the station. Please spread the word and, if you are in geographic range, PLEASE come join us; a show of numbers is pretty critical.

388 Atlantic Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11217

And please show the cafe some support. They're WBAI's landlord as well, and have also been thrown into peril by the station's closure.

We are working behind the scenes to figure out our next moves, and will talk about it at the event. We're also working on getting it recorded and streamed, we'll keep you posted.

Thanks, everyone. As you can imagine this is pretty daunting, but I'm keeping the faith that this isn't the last you'll hear of @HackerRadioShow.
