Spread the Byte

"During the summer of 1989 the world as we know it will go into overload. An interstellar particle stream of hackers, phonephreaks, radioactivists and assorted technological subversives will be fusing their energies into a media melt-down as the global village plugs into Amsterdam for three electrifying days of information interchange and electronic capers. (... ) The Force must be nurtured. If you are refused transport because your laptop looks like a bomb, cut off behind enemy lines, or unable to attend for any other reason, then join us via the networks. Other Hacker groups are requested to organize similar gatherings to coincide with ours. (... ) Please relay this announcement through all channels of communication you can access. Spread the Byte, Spread the Byte, Spread the Byte " (Organization Folder 1989).note 101
