BrumCon is a semi regular (ok regular) event organised by Brum2600 regulars, featuring a wide variety of talks, discussion, demos and most importantly, alcohol. Incorrectly but neatly dubbed a 'blackhat thinktank' by NTK (www.ntk.net),

The Register - 'We have your water supply, and printers', BBC Midlands Today - 'Spooky' and by you lot as the UK's biggest underground Hacker con. We welcome all kinds of phreaks, geeks and other technologically interested people from all sides of the fence (as long as hats, badges and warrants are left at the door).

The entrance fee this year again stays at 5 UK Pounds per delegate (Again F M how do we do it ?). This year by request we are introducing a corporate pack that includes entrance, T-shirt and receipt all for an amazingly low price contact us at brumcon6@brum2600.net to book.
