After three successful years, Notacon's 2007 event will also be host to Blockparty, a North American demoparty. In the past, Notacon has tackled its goal of being a creativity-oriented technology event by pushing themes of art, music, history, communication, community, and hacker culture. This year, there'll be talks from some of the biggest names in the demo scene, competitions, and even more great prizes. Also in the works is a talk given by a dead guy. (His sense of humor would totally approve.) There's a ham radio station planned for this year, plus the streaming-audio Notacon Radio. Oh yes, bring your contraptions for Anything but Ethernet, my absurd networking contest.
Now here's what makes it all interesting: Notacon just announced the first three speakers for the 2007 event, but the Call for Proposals is still open. Notacon's all about giving interesting ideas a venue, so if you have something to contribute to the milieu, write it up! Submit it! Do it today!
