Dinner: Silver Mine Subs, 7pm
Meeting: tummy.com space at Re/Max, 4703 Boardwalk (by Sam's), 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.
Dinner will be at 7pm at the Silver Mine Subs on East Harmony. This is
just a half block east of the meeting location, by the Kohl's and the
artist formerly known as Steel's grocery store...
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
