In the small auditorium was the hack room. Participants were invited to bring their computer and hook it up to the network. Incoming computers were registered but these records have not been kept. Only the blank form for registration. From memory I recall that there were no more than 20 computers. At the time it was quite an effort taking a computer along. In the hacker salon it was mostly young boys that gathered. With tables along the walls, you would see clusters of 'geeks' hanging around a screen. Being the producer of the event, I would only pass by now and then and leave them be. And they were happy to be left alone. From stories, I understood that people exchanged information, some 'hacks' were tried out, but none of them became a story that travelled beyond the hack room.
