   Dinner: Al Salam, 7pm
   Meeting: 311 South College Ave, 8pm

This Tuesday, May 14th from 8pm to 11pm we will be having another
installment of the Hacking Society.  At 7pm we'll be gathering at Al Salam
for dinner, then heading over to the normal place at 8pm for the main

Al Salam is on College across from the CSU campus.  It's on the east side
of the street, in the same building as "My Tubbery", kind of by Mellow

The main meeting is in the Exasource conference room in the JYM-IS
building at 311 South College, across the street from the north Perkins.
It's in the back of the Aggie Travel parking lot.

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
