		Fellow Hackers, Slackers, and Code-crackers:
        On Friday November 18th at 7pm PST we will be holding our monthly
        official Midnight Research Labs meeting.

        The focus for this month will be an entry-level talk/presentation on
        RFID, and also furthering development on wicrawl.  Check out
        [http://midnightresearch.com/wiki/index.php/Wicrawl] for more details.

        Anyone with project ideas, or active projects that they want
        help with are encouraged to bring them along.  This can either
        be just to show them off, or to actively propose them for an
        official MRL project.  Projects are generally either security
        or "novel computing" related, though we're always open to cool
        and new ideas (read robotics, electronics hacking, etc =).
        Don't feel pressured to come up with something or bring anything.

        Light refreshments, pizza and beer will be served.

        Agenda:
                Phase 0x0: Bootstrapping
                  - Greetings and welcome
                  - Who we are, and what we do
                Phase 0x1: Initialization
                  - RFID preso (25 min)
                  - RFID project brainstorming (15 min?)
                  - wicrawl
                          - status
                          - Design, brainstorming, etc
                          - roles, research, and project pieces
                          - Project Hacking!
                Phase 0x2: Local exploits
                  - Food
                  - Off topic tools, toys and other shiny things -- If anyone
                    has any interesting to show off or play with, please bring
                    it.
                        - cybernmd's VR goggles
                  - Whatever till whenever -- This is the more social
                    part of the event.  People are invited to stay and
                    hack and have a couple drinks till whenever this

        This is an "invite only" event, so, don't distribute the location to
        just anyone =).  That being said, we're still looking for active
        members, so if you know someone that would be interested in
        contributing and want to sponsor or vouch for them, feel free to bring
        them along (let me know in advance if possible)

       Location:
       [ censored for http, contact [sth -[at]- midnightresearch dot com] for details ]

                For those remote, we will have a conference number, and I'll
                email that out shortly before the meeting.

        Notes (nfo):
        - We're about 1.5 miles from bart.
        - Bringing a Laptop is a probably good idea if you have one.
        - Please feel free to contact me by email or phone if you have
          any questions
        - I don't expect hordes of people to show up, probably ~8-10 but I
          do expect the signal to noise ratio to be very good.  I hope that
          people learn and are challenged by attending, and on the flipside,
          I expect great things to come out of MRL.


Thanks! Hope to see you there!
