Horror Stories from Hacker World

For attendees:

Dear nullcon attendees,

If you have worked in tech long enough, you have probably experienced that gut-wrenching, stomach-churning, queasy moment when everything around you came crashing down because someone typed one incorrect command. And if you were fortunate, it was you who caused it.

"Horror Stories from Hacker World" is a celebration of these moments where we neither glorify nor vilify such stories. Our world is shaped by the stories we tell, and these stories portray the ground reality and the inevitability of failures.

We invite you to join us and hear the experts paint the moment through their stories that scarred and humbled them, but also gave them the spectacular expertise that most of us lack.

For storytellers:

Dear hackers, researchers, and storytellers,

You have worked in tech long enough to know that failure is inevitable. You have experienced moments that made your stomach churn, your heart skip a beat, and your mind go blank for some moments. And you know that it was "fortunately" you who caused it. Perhaps because you mistyped a command, or because you were distracted. Or maybe because it was a series of tiny human mistakes which ended up culminating into a disaster.

"Horror Stories from Hacker World" is a celebration of these moments. We neither glorify nor vilify such stories. Our world is shaped by the stories we tell, and the stories you share will portray the fragility of things around us.

As the Japanese proverb goes, even monkeys fall from trees. We invite you to narrate the moment of humility and vulnerability that makes you the expert you are. Share the stories that can help create a culture of empathy, humility, and resilience.
