The best way to describe this talk is to simply quote some of what we received from its presenter: “I’m Johnny. I hack stuff. I’ve been at it for quite a while now, and I’ve picked up a few tricks along the way. I get asked about my tricks all the time, mostly by kids who saw that movie. You know the one. But I’ve always said no. I’ve held onto my secrets as part of the pact I made with the hacker underground. I mean, I’m allowed to give talks and presentations about hacking stuff, but the secrets… the real super-cool secrets I’ve had to keep to myself. The head of the underground said so. But I got this email the other day that says I’m THIS close to getting kicked out of the underground. Seems the glare of the public eye has been on me for far too long and I’ve become a liability. So, I’m going to be proactive. I’m going to quit before they can fire me…. The underground is gonna be sooo ticked off.”

We need a living hope to get through life and endure suffering. A living hope enables us to have both sorrow and joy. Our living hope is an inheritance achieved for us by Christ.
A regular speaker at HOPE since 2000, Jello provides a unique and charismatic look at what’s been going on in the world since the last time we all got together. Whether you’re a technologist or a technophobe, his words will almost certainly have an effect on your emotions one way or another.
The “world’s most dangerous hacker” and subject of our documentary Freedom Downtime (along with many other more sensationalist pieces over the decades) gives us an update on what’s been going on in his life since the last time he was here in 2004. (A severe case of food poisoning in Colombia forced him to cancel his HOPE Number Six appearance - which may be one of the stories he tells this time.)
