MRL meeting announcement

I haven’t published the official meeting announcement here for a while, so I thought I’d post it as an example of what we’ve been up to. I usually post them directly to the email list with full details if you’re interested in attending.

                Fellow Hackers, Slackers, and Code-crackers:

        On Friday July 21st at 7pm PST we will be holding our monthly official
        Midnight Research Labs meeting.

        Since we got a little side-tracked with CTF and binary reversing topics
        last month, we still have a couple of the same events listed this month
        that we didn't get to cover last month.

                - Mini-presentation on BiDiBLAH, an "Automated Assessment
                  Tool" written by SensePost, and presented by Aaron.
                - Javascript and sockets, etc mini-presentation by Focus
                - Ferro-Fluid:  We tried with not much success to create some
                  ferrofluid last week, so we hope to have some *real*
                  ferrofluid to play with this week.

        As always, anyone with cool toys, or interesting project ideas, bring
        them along.


        Light refreshments, pizza and beer will be served.  If anyone has a
        better/newer/different suggestion for food, let me know.

        Agenda:
                Phase 0x0: Bootstrapping
                  - Greetings and welcome
                  - MRL updates and status
                Phase 0x1: Initialization
                  - BiDiBlah mini-preso
                  - Javascript ans socks mini-preso
                  - FerroFluid Fun
                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.
                  - 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
                    phase is no longer self-sustaining, =)


        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:

               [private residence and contact.  Removed for public posting] 

                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 (the Bayfair stop).
        - 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

Thanks! Hope to see you there!
