In the early 1980s, 2600: The Hacker Quarterly was started to help hackers and phreakers share information. It is still very popular with hackers today and is considered by many to be controversial in nature—in a cognitively complex “nice” sort of way. Eric Corley (a.k.a. Emmanuel Goldstein) is the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, and Ed Cummings (a.k.a. Bernie S.) is a regular contributor and collaborator. Subscriptions, back issues, and other merchandise are available from its online store or by consulting its price list and sending money to 2600 Magazine, P.O. Box 75, Middle Island, NY 11953, U.S.A. The magazine is a strong supporter of the Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) convention held every two years in New York City.
