Why?
GSO turns three this year so it seams like the best time for us to try and arrange the first ever meeting of the GSO “Horde”.

Where
Well in New York City of course! In the Atrium of the City Group Building which is located at 53rd and Lexington.

Directions from the Port Authority Bus Terminal
When arriving in the Port Authority Terminal follow the signs for the subway. Then follow the signs to the uptown trains. You want to get on the Uptown "E" train. Once on the train you want to wait for the 4th stop which should be Lexington. Get off here and follow the signs to the surface. You will be right next to the huge silver citi group building. Go in, there is a check point so make sure you don't have anything stupid in your bag.

Directions from the Pennstation Train Depot
When arriving follow the signs for the subway. Then follow the signs to the uptown trains. You want to get on the Uptown "E" train. Once on the train you want to wait for the 5th stop which should be Lexington. Get off here and follow the signs to the surface. You will be right next to the huge silver citi group building. Go in, there is a check point so make sure you don't have anything stupid in your bag.

When?
September 23, 2005 @ 5:30pm EST till whenever you leave, though I think the Citigroup atrium closes at 9. After which some of us “older” gentlemen will go and grab some beers from the local pub.

What We Need
We would like to have some people give a discussion on something so if you have a topic you want to give a presentation on send me a PM.

What This Won't Be
Organized – Basically there won't be much order, just a bunch of people hanging out for a bit.

What this CAN'T Be
Don't be a fool and get your self in trouble while screaming “Don't arrest me I am a member of GSO”, don't do anything illegal because I will not be responsible for what you do.

I would love to come there, but the thing is GSO is widely spread, and for me there is like a few thousend kilometers. Maybe if there will be a meeting in Europa.

Possible some of the discussings will be recorded, and published on GSO site?

I once thought of such a meeting, too. It's a nice idea for letting the members know each other better, but the problem is that not many members might come, since the members do any other things in this time(school, important projects etc.). Another important thing is that most members live in different countries than USA, and can have problems with coming there, visa trouble for example, still a lot of countries have problems with American visas. Some members are able to come certainly. Some will come. But since GSO is an "international" security forum, I guess only 5 percent of the members are from USA, or maybe less.
Anyway, it would be a good idea for making a live video for the members who aren't able to come there but still want to. Accesses given could be as follows:
-Open proxies are blocked.
-IP addresses in USA (since they are able to come) will also be blocked to avoid them making lazy.

OI!! I disagree with the Blocking of USA I.P. addresses, i'm in the U.S. and can't come because i'll have school during that time period. That, and because I would feel overwhelmed from all the knowledge everyone else would have over me :P And...i'm a few states over :P

But it would be cool to have something like this every year...like a White/Black hat convention? Where both groups get together in one area and argue lol

dangit why is everything always across the country. I am in CA. Have a huge Video Conference so we can all sit in and add 0ur 2cents in everything. The GSOCon. I second that! Also I like the idea of the recording too. And I also disagree with blocking USA Ip addresses as I live in the USA. If you decide to setup some kind of video conference I will defently set aside the time. I just cannot afford to fly to NY right now.

I would love to go being that I am a couple of hours away. Definitley would like more people to show up or at least have some sort of plan of what we are going to talk about or do. Sorry its the over compulsive in me. But def a good idea. We should set up a video confrence that way the people in Europe and USA could interact and nobody is left out.

I'd love to come, but can't. I'd need more advance notice. Did I miss it?

Besides, I don't have anything to wear!
Don't post just a THANKS! Here's why...
