Have you ever dreamed of hacking the Gibson? Wearing rollerblades to a party? Playing a beta of Wipeout on a massive projection screen? Listening to Orbital's Halcyon & On & On while spinning in a telephone booth wearing a virtual reality visor in Grand Central?

Now is your chance to come embrace the ridiculousness and imagination of Hackers the movie -- a film that inspired a generation of internet enthusiasts.

We're celebrating the 15th anniversary of the film's premier (September 15th 1995) with a cyberpunk fête on October 2nd 2010.

Location: TBA in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Time: 10pm - ?

21+ (bring your ID)

Music: All your favorite 90s techno classics.

DJs: Praveen (Sepalcure / Percussion Lab / Hotflush Recordings), choyce hacks! (resonatormag.com), red foxx (hearthrob / karmaloop)

Dress: Your finest cyberpunk regalia.

Visualists: Outpt + Paris (http://outptandparis.com/)

Photos: The Culture of Me (http://thecultureofme.com/)

We've got a killer location in Brooklyn (minutes from the L by cab / free shuttle) for this party, but in keeping with theme of the movie, we're going to keep it a secret until the last minute.

Backers pledging $15 will get sent the location and admission to the party (cheaper than the door price), and a commemorative 3.5" neon floppy disk. Pledge more and you'll get a custom costume for the party, and root access to the Gibson.

$500 gets you a hacker slave that has to wear a dress to the party.

Party Planning Committee: Fred Benenson, Elizabeth Stark, Arikia Millikan, Martin G, and Dean J.
