CTRP474 A New Dawn Rises in Hamburg

Once a year, somewhere in Germany, several thousand enthusiastic individuals get together to consider those changes and look into what else is possible in the future.

This event, known as the Chaos Communication Congress, has brought me friends and acquaintences that I feel very fortunate to have and look forward to seeing year after year.

Today on the program: Emmanuel and Kyle of 2600 Magazine, Off the Hook and Off the Wall.
