Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
Do you love technology? Do you like to tinker? Do you want to understand more about how things (and the universe) work? Are you interested in information security? Any of these topics are discussed, and people from all professions and interests attend. Then come on by. Now meeting the first Friday of each month from 5-8 pm at Panera Bread on the Berlin Turnpike.
The meetings include discussions and demonstrations on topics that range widely. Anything to do with hacking in both the old positive sense of the word (understanding, playing with, and using technologies in a way not originally intended), and the media-modified negative version of the word (hackers now being synonymous now with computer criminals (FYI, Bill Gates & Steve Jobs were considered “hackers” originally), how to hack, how to deal with “hackers”, etc. This isn’t just for computers, it can be phones, cameras, radios, the list is very broad.
The hope with this website is to get meetings rolling again in the area, or if there are meetings still occurring, but are not being well publicized, to have those meeting members post their time and locations so others may join and/or consolidate our resources.
