    Black Hat World Meetup
    Janurary 2013
    New York City


    So I am planning a BHW meetup for this time. I don't care that it is cold//flights suck//you have work//whatever problems you have. Don't suggest I move it. I don't live in America. This is when and where I am visiting. So deal with it, or don't come, or organize your own!

    So then. Who wants to come?

    Any suggestions on where we should meetup/what you think we should do? Lets try something classy please :D

    Well, when I said "classy" I meant lets not visit a strip club, though dangerous dark corners are also out ;)

    This is not a popcornable thread. I mean it will be if no one wants to come :) I am not paying for anyone or anything. And I live a modest lifestyle so wherever we meet I don't intend on spending a lot :) I've had forum meet-ups before. So I don't see why it can't be done here!

    I might be interested since this is closer to me than meathead's meet up was in London. It all depends on the cash flow really.

    Your arrogance rejects possible visitors, you could've said nicely that you can't move it to any other date/place. How could you expect someone to come if you say that you don't care if he can/can't make it...

    I wouldn't call the Op arrogant, more "keeping it Real" then arrogant. I was going to suggest just about everything that he said not too, so he stopped about 30 threads that would have been complaining abut January in the city, shitty flights, etc.

    I'm in CT so if it goes down, I'm there. Count me in - If I'm not doing IM full time by then, I will at least take a day off and come down to the city. Even if it's 4 or 5 people only it would be pretty cool to brainstorm. Maybe get a solid JV together.

    Thank you :D

    I started a thread about this awhile ago, and I got those complaints and that is ALL I got. What people didn't understand was that I was organizing this meetup because I wanted to meet up with BHW members. And the best place to do that is America... and that is when (and where) I'm going to America, and I can't change it... so why would anyone think I would move it to spring/somewhere else? :p

    Would love to see you (and the others who have shown interest) there :)

    Brainstorming would be cool and a JV, though honestly its not even about it being a mastermind meetup. It'd just be nice to actually MEET other black hatters for a brief moment, rather than just lin in some isolated bubble all the time ;D

    We could make it a Saturday or a Sunday so it doesn't interfere with peoples jobs.

    Please count me in. And, please let me know if you need assistance on organizing the BHW meet-up event in NYC.

    Note: No strip bars, please...as there are so much things to do in NYC than watching the bouncing melons that you can't touch.
