A lot of security work these days is web centric. I'm not much of a web person myself and like to go lower on the stack...much lower. Looking for people that work at the lower levels from using IDA to RE binaries down to RE'ing computer chips from microscope images. Haven't updated the blog for a while (but not idle), seeing if others would be interested in forming a local community that does hardware chip reverse engineering: http://uvicrec.blogspot.com/

This meetup is for you if you want to learn what makes a computer tick whether that be to understand what a compiler spits out or to understand how to physically encode an opcode. Looking for people with range of experience, but it would really help to have some basic electronics or lower level (say C, ideally assembly) programming experience. However, I realize that a lot of people might be interested and not work at that level, so maybe we just need some lectures to teach people basic assembly.

Supporting a class right now, maybe could parallel the lectures over here? http://security.cs.rpi.edu/courses/hwre-spring2014/
