Sorry for the late notice. EFM and I are going out to a conference this
week and were totally busy this weekend getting ready to go. Note that the
meeting is at the Wired Bean tonight.
NOTE: New meeting space. Read below for more information.
Dinner: Silver Mine Subs, 7pm
Meeting: Wired Bean Coffee Shop, West Elizabeth, 8pm
This Tuesday from 8pm to 11pm we will be having another installment of the
Hacking Society. At 7pm we'll be gathering at a restaurant for dinner,
then heading over to the normal place at 8pm for the main event.
Note that this week Sean and Evelyn are out of town, and will not be able
to provide a space for the meeting. However, we have checked with the
Wired Bean Coffee Shop, and they will be open until Midnight Tuesday.
Dinner will be at the Silver Mine Subs in the same building. They are both
just short of a block West of the CSU campus on Elizabeth.
The goal of the Hacking Society is to foster geek community-building
through the shared experience of hacking. Of course, by "hacking",
I mean the more historic meaning of working on interesting projects
(Jargon File "hack" entry, sense 6). Not the "script kiddies trying to
compromise boxes" meaning which has become what most people think of in
relation to the term.
It's meant to be a sacred place full of positive hacking energy, if you
will. Hacking by osmosis...
Hacking Society is primarily meant for you to come and work on your own
projects, as opposed to soliciting others to solve your problems (which is
usually more what goes on at an Install Fest or at the main NCLUG
