BeanSec! is an informal meetup of information security professionals, researchers and academics in the Greater Boston area that meets the third Wednesday of each month.
I say again, BeanSec! is hosted the third Wednesday of every month. Add it to your calendar.
Come get your grub on. Lots of good people show up. Really.
Unlike other meetings, you will not be expected to pay dues, “join up”, present a zero-day exploit, or defend your dissertation to attend. Map to the Enormous Room in Cambridge.
Enormous Room: 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge 02139. Look for the Elephant on the left door next to the Central Kitchen entrance. Come upstairs. We sit on the left hand side...
Don't worry about being "late" because most people just show up when they can. 6:30 is a good time to aim for. We'll try and save you a seat. There is a parking garage across the street and 1 block down or you can try the streets (or take the T)
In case you're wondering, we're getting about 30-40 people on average per BeanSec! Weld, 0Day and I have been at this for just over a year and without actually *doing* anything, it's turned out swell.
We've had some really interesting people of note attend lately (I'm not going to tell you who...you'll just have to come and find out.) At around 9:00pm or so, the DJ shows up...as do the rather nice looking people from the Cambridge area, so if that's your scene, you can geek out first and then get your thang on.
The food selection is basically high-end finger-food appetizers and the drinks are really good; an attentive staff and eclectic clientèle make the joint fun for people watching. I'll generally annoy you into participating somehow, even if it's just fetching napkins. ;)
See you there.
