Yo!  BeanSec! is once again upon us.  Wednesday, November 19th, 2008.
Middlesex Lounge: 315 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge 02139. 

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.

This week we have a special guest attendee from the UK/France/Hungary*: Craig Balding – Security Pro and Cloud Security Blogger (www.cloudsecurity.org)

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 plenty of parking around or take the T.

In case you're wondering, we're getting about 30 people on average
per BeanSec! Weld, 0Day and I have been at this for just almost 2 years
and without actually *doing* anything, it's turned out swell.

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.

/Hoff, /0Day, and /Weld

*The "France" thing was a joke but my strikethrough formatting didn't come out right…you can tell it worked by Craig's comments below ;)

    Thanks for the intro :)
    I realise I'm in danger of splitting hairs here…but France? That might explain why I have troubles understanding the language here… I did once go to the French embassy here in *Hungary* to watch a rugby match between France and England that could only end in tears for the French ex-pats. I have been to France so maybe that counts?

    You should share this trick with McKeay. It might be a way to help him achieve his blog/comment ratio :P http://twitter.com/mckeay/status/995008379
    I'm outta here! See you at BeanSec!

    I wish I could be there with you in Bean Town! I will be dodging rain drops at a Virtualization Project in Seattle.
    Can we participate via Skype video conference?
