The model of Metricon/MiniMetricon (http://www.securitymetrics.org) might be
a nice, workable model to follow and with RSA around the corner, there might
be quite a few list members attending to warrant at least a "Meetup"
Lyger, perhaps an "Are you going to RSA?" thread for people to use for the
basis of connecting?
