NoVA Hackers is back!

Well, at least it's now a reality in web form. The NoVA hackers mailing list has been thriving for the last 3 months with over 1400 messages posted and 79 active members.

That group can be found at: http://groups.google.com/group/novahackers

It is an invite only group, but any member may invite. We have evening meetings once a month on the second Monday of the month. We will still be having our meeting in February on the 8th with the intention that people who might not be leaving suddenly can come and check out the meeting. These dinner meetings have at least one presentation and are currently hosted at:

Glory Days Grill 
3059 Nutley Street, Fairfax, VA 22031-1931

which is a stones throw from the Vienna metro exit.

We also have lunch meetings which are less formal and more centrally located:

China Garden
1100 Wilson Blvd
Arlington, VA 22209
(703) 525-5317

which is near the Rosslyn metro exit in the Channel 7 building, at the top of the escalators.

The lunch meetings happen on the last Thursday of the month. Next meeting being January 28th.

We have opened up the web site for members to post about the meetings, about conversations they have on the list, or other topics that relate to information security in the NoVA/DC area.
