I just launched securityhangout.org as a website for IT security folks to hang out, ask questions of their peers, get answers, learn, etc. The main hangout is at forum.securityhangout.org. Right now it is pretty empty, but I really hope people will register and start posting. If I get enough active members I can expand it to include more than just a board to post info. I have a lot of ideas and if the community there grows I'll be asking them for ideas too. But for now I'm going to see if there is a desire for such a place and if it gets traction before putting a lot of effort into it. Here are some of the rules that I hope will get you interested:
1. Be respectful, this isn't a place for flame wars
2. No sales pitches, even in PM's, this is a place for peers to be able to talk
3. No spam or spam like posts
I will be approving membership and monitoring posts and banning people who post spam or are trying to sell a product or themselves instead of contribute. So let's see how this goes. Sign up today and get the cool names before they are gone!
