  • Anyone up for starting a UK-England DCxxx ??

    I think there's a 2600 con around London, but surprisingly, there isn't anything DefCon-esque started in the UK. If there's any interest, PM, post or mail me, anything! I'd really like to know if there's anyone out there in the UK that would consider giving up an evening a month to join up to discuss security/computing/anything that comes up! I'd be happy to create and organise a website, organise meeting plans, plus coordination of events over IRC/Chat clients - if there's any interest at all.
    It'd most likely be centrally located around the Midlands (around Staffordshire), but we could organise that all later.
    No discrimination of age, sex, race, or any of that crap. Lots of trading of ideas and possibly a side-order of alcohol, LAN parties, who knows. Maybe even "Hacker-Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" (most British people don't know what 'Jeapordy' is, WWTOAM is closer to home)
    Anyway I'm just brainstorming. PM or whatever if you're interested.
    Thanks!

        One thing that may be useful to everyone involved here: are you looking to start a convention, or a meeting? There's quite a difference between the two.

        BTW im based in the westmidlands so im centralized if that helps.
        Please tell me you're not in Derby. If you are, can you at least assure me that Ritzy's has been long-demolished? God, I hated that place.

          Well, just for the moment I'd say just a meeting. In the past month or so I've met about 6 or 7 people who would join up for a meet once a month, which is really encouraging. I think I might start up a website, message board, irc channel or something to start some communication, get something going. For the moment, anyone who's interested, post any ideas here :)
          Feel free to contact me, I heart email.

                while we are discussing meetings, are there any uk folks up north that can't make it to london because of distance want to meet up?? i'm 50m north of Aberdeen and it's one hell of a journey to come down every month.
                Now, who want's the coffee for the coffee wars?

                            Um well I think setting one up is a bit beyond me, but turning up I might be able to manage.

                            Im currently at uni in southampton...I supose I could do something, but that relies on me being organised. We'll see.

                            What about you?
