It's a place for fellow hackers to trade ideas, plan hacking
sessions, and learn cool programming tricks. Also, people working on
personal projects could post notices here, and then get other hackers to
help out. Most people don't have the time to get the bigger projects
done entirely on their own.
What are the dues?
Well, it's free for each year you're a member, and it's an
for a lifetime membership. You can demand that we revoke your
membership at any time.
When are the meetings?
In a nutshell, they're never. Or they're impromptu. People will be
happiest when they do whatever they want. For this reason, there is no
meeting requirement. Of course, you can just e-mail a few people and
get together for a hack-fest, if you want.
Is this organization affiliated with Chico State University?
Nope. Not in the least way. We are not sponsored, supported,
condoned, or even acknowledged by the university. We just want to have
a good time without all the paperwork.
What's the point, then?
See, this is a grand experiment. It takes me basically no time to
keep this organization running (since it doesn't officially exist) and
members have no obligations within the guild. There is no risk and no
extra effort. People will do what they want to do and, because of this,
this organization is bound to be at the very least slightly successful.
Our entire purpose is for computer people to do what they want. Isn't
this what life is supposed to be about?
