Monthly Meeting Recap

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who attended this months meeting. We had 7 people in attendance, a record so far. Lets keep it going. One of the important things that we discussed is acquiring our own hackerspace. I've been in touch with somebody from the University at Albany who has graciously taken it upon himself to find out if we can use one of the Computer Science labs.

What is Hacking?

Over the last several issues of 2600 Magazine, they've had articles on what hacking means. I thought that this would be a great topic for the group. I will start with a description of what I think hacking is and I hope that either through comments here, on this blog, or on the Facebook group page; people will share their views one what hacking is.

Reminder of Tomorrows Meeting

I wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow is our official monthly meeting of 2600 from 5pm to whenever we decide to leave. I will be arriving at 3:30 or 4pm, depending on how fast the bus can get me from work to the Starbucks (at 1244 Western Ave, Albany, NY), to reserve seating so, if you are around, stop on by. I will be the one wearing the 2600 shirt. There will also be 2600 signs on the tables so that you can find us.

Hello Everyone,

August 5th meeting

I have now posted the August 5th meeting on our Facebook page. As mentioned in a previous post, we will be meeting at Borders this time instead of Starbucks. It will be at 5pm. I didn't put an end time this time because we went past the end time listed last time; so it is 5pm to whenever we decide to leave.

You can contact Chris at 518.364.2797 and chrismazzei[at]gm**


Me at email: 2600albany[at]gm** [fill in the ** with ai], or my phone number: 518-810-6942.
