Cheshire Catalyst is now a regular speaker at the HOPE (Hackers on Planet Earth) hacker conferences in New York City. In July 2000, he made an appearance on the Â“The Old Timer PanelÂ” with fellow phreakers Bootleg and John Draper. In July 2004, Cheshire launched a public rant social experiment at the HOPE 5 conference that was very well received. Participants were told to write their rant and then to orally deliver it in 45 seconds, complete with relevant hyperlinks. CheshireÂ’s Web page can be found at http://www.CheshireCatalyst.com.
