DC909 is the 909 chapter of the Defcon hacker conference. Our goal is to maintain the spirit of the Defcon conference through out the year. This includes education, experimentation, research and social interaction.

DC909 is not limited to just the 909 area code. It includes 951, formally part of the 909, and anyone is welcome to participate. DC909 is interested in collaborating with other DC chapters and organizations interested in computer security and technology hacking.

Point of Confusion

The Defcon.org page has announced the forming of DC909 but this was announced by the good guys over at Cal Poly Pomona (CPP). I believe that it should have been announced that DC Cal Poly Pomona (DCCPP) chapter was formed since, through my coordination with them, that was their plan. The contact information listed at Defcon.org is the SWIFT (Students With an Interest in the Future of Telecommunications) organization at CPP which makes sense for the DCCPP chapter.

If you're a member of the CPP community or want to be part of the DC organization that serves CPP I'd direct you to the DCCPP organization. DC909.org serves the greater 909 and 951 area codes. I'll try to sort this out and make sure that the Defcon.org page has the correct contact info.

We Need a Meeting Place

I'm trying to find a meeting place. I'd like it to be central and convenient for 909 and 951 residents. Due to the size of the 909/951 this is a difficult task. I'm considering something near the Ontario Airport.

I'd prefer it not be a restaurant unless they have a private meeting room. It's much too difficult to socialize when people are scattered across tables and it would be impossible to have a speaker.

I'm sure hotel conference rooms could be rented but I think a no-cost solution would be better. Something like a community center or library might be a good choice. Please contact me if you have ideas.
