Hacking Society

On the compsci mailing list, Migz Paraz mentions the
Hacking Society, a pretty cool
idea.

I’d love a real-life space like this. Currently, I get this sort of
stimulation in irc.freenode.net#emacs, which has a high concentration
of – what else? – Emacs geeks who speak little LISP snippets like
it was their native language.

It would be nice to have this happen in real-life; a space where we
can pair-program on anything that comes along. All we really need is a
space with computers (or bring your own!), a common time to meet, and
a common desire to learn something new and hack on something cool.

I’m all for it.
