Hackers on a Plane is one of those unique hacker events that defy all of the odds that the mainstream throws our way. What if a bunch of hackers got together and chartered space on a commercial airline, then journeyed throughout Europe to take part in various hacker conferences and see the emerging hacker spaces in several different countries? Not only is this very possible, but it's all completely organized. It's the perfect way to experience this summer's hacker activities on a global scale and at an affordable price.
But we have a serious dilemma. Not all of the tickets have been sold, no doubt due to the lousy economy and other such mundane issues. As those people who refuse to let reality get in the way, the hacker community needs to come together and keep this project from falling short, a fate that would probably doom future such endeavors. So if you have any dream of being a part of Hackers on a Plane, or know others who might be interested, now is the time to step forward. We only have to sell around ten tickets for the expenses to be covered and this needs to be done by the 10th of this month to fulfill terms with the airline and all that fun stuff.

This is what you get. For a total cost of $1618.03, you get round trip airfare from New York City, accomodations while you're away, admission to both PlumberCon and HAR, and a full tour of hacker spaces in Austria, Germany, and Holland. You leave New York the morning of August 4th and return the afternoon of August 18th.

Would that I could, but taking two weeks unpaid leave, in addition to the week of (possibly) unpaid leave I'm taking when the baby is born, just isn't feasible.

Hope it comes out okay- are you going on this trip, Paul?

This is the first I have heard that you have a baby on the way... Congrats!

I'd love to go but I don't think the company I just started working for would like me disappearing for so long so early. Also, i'm still broke until I get my first months worth of pay.
