Chronologists, Time travelers and  Fellow Futurologists,

Join us at our exhibition on creative technical fiasco’s through the ages: the Chronicles of Total Failure.

In this exposé, you will find the finest selection of interactive calamities, tragedies and  faux pas that once haunted the pioneers of the cyber technology frontier.  

Cringe at the clutter once called “The Cloud”!
Tremble at tortured mixtures of code and data!
Feel the claustrophobia of IPv4!

But most of all, test your knowledge of archeologic trivia and your skill with ancient technologies against the best minds that time and space has to offer!

The exhibition will be held on May 9th – 10th, 2019, at the Hack in the Box conference in Amsterdam.

Entry to the exhibition is limited to a maximum of 27 parties, with no party exceeding 3 attendees.
