NOCO 2600 in the new year

This coming weekend is a event called “March for Science”. In an era that plays fast and loose with facts, and has an active agenda to bury evidence, someone needs to stand up for the sciences. Take a look at the link below.
Maybe I’ll see you there!

Turnout has been great at all of the meetings this year. Many new faces. The new format for the meetings has worked out well. There may be a great many IT professionals in the group, but anyone is welcome. We encourage open minds, and the questioning of security and privacy. Get involved!

Don’t forget DC970 will have a Capture the Flag (CTF) event this Thursday night. https://dc970.org/2017/04/ctf-night/
