(Hackers as in, “I hack computer code together”, not as in “I hacked into Citibank’s computers”)

We get together every couple of weeks to talk about the software business, web 2.0 stuff, new technologies that interest us, and our business plans in particular.

So far, we’ve probably had 10 new companies launch out of our group, and founders and early employees from 30-40 startups that have already launched.

We’re about a year old, we have 300 people on our mailing list, and routinely 20-25 people show up for our events.

It’s a really great way to get to know people, and a great community to be around as you start a business.
