May 17, 2002-Dearborn, MI- MacHack, the legendary Dearborn, MI, developers’
conference, is only weeks away. Now, the committee is ready to unveil not
only the preliminary sessions list, but something just as important, the
conference aesthetic.

Every year, the MacHack conference attempts to provide a unique conference
theme that not only embodies the spirit of the conference but also ties
together the ethos of the hack contest with the engineering “geekiness”
that makes MacHack what it is. In years past, the themes have included
2001: A Hack Odyssey, the Voyage of Darwin and a heavily caffeinated
72-hour Diner.

This year, with much flourish, MacHack calls upon the Iron Hackers. These
developers of the highest technical prowess do battle for 72-hours each to
prove their technical prowess versus their opponents. They come from across
the globe to test their skills and vie in the legendary MacHax(tm) Group
Best Hack Contest. And should one of these challengers win the coveted
Victor A-Trap he will gain the people’s ovation and fame forever.

This theme, “Hakku no tetsujin”, literally Iron Man of the Hack, will be
emblazoned on all conference materials, making a unique souvenir proving to
all that the attendee is indeed an Iron Hacker.

Conference registration costs $525 and includes access to all conference
events, 3 meals and the conference banquet. Of course, attendance of the
legendary Hack Show is mandatory. Secure registration and more information
are available at the conference website. MacHack 17 will take place June
20-22, 2002, in Dearborn, Michigan. More information is available on the
