NOTE: New meeting space. Read below for more information.
Dinner: South China, 7pm
Meeting: 311 South College Ave, 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 South China. South China is in the Wal-Mart mall
south west of the intersection of College and Harmony. To be precise, it's
towards the north end of the mall, south west of Mason and Harmony (a short
block west of College).
The main meeting is being held in the Re/Max building where tummy.com, ltd.
has some office space. This is the Re/Max building just west of Sam's Club
on the west side of Boardwalk just south of Harmony.
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
