1. Q: Your announcement says "techies and their friends". How do I
know if I'm a techie, or a friend of one?
A: Well, actually, you don't have to be a techie to attend. You
just have to be able to find the sig-beer-west sign at this
month's event. That's it. Simple, huh?
2. Q: I'm not really a beer person. In fact I'm interested in
hanging out, but not in drinking. Would I be welcome?
A: Absolutely! The point is to hang out with fun, interesting
folks. Please do join us.
3. Q: I've been thinking about attending sig-beer-west for some time
now. Maybe I should start with this event?
sig-beer-west was started in February 2002 when a couple Washington,
D.C. based systems administrators who moved to the San Francisco Bay
area wanted to continue a dc-sage tradition, SIG-beer, which is
described in sig-beer.NET web space as:
SIG-beer, n., origin lost to intoxication:
1. Special Interest Group - Beer!
2. An Interprocessor Communications (IPC) signal that should be
implemented in every O/S kernel. Semantics are left to the
hardware driver for the Robotic Drinks Server. Expected behavior
is that kill -beer <pid>
3. A standing monthly gathering of systems administrators,
past/present/future, and their ilk in Washington, DC. and other
worldwide locations. These gathering consists of a friendly
gathering of people who enjoy tasting/drinking interesting beer
and chatting about computers, life, and how to implement the
SIG-beer into their systems. It started with a group of
dc.sage sysadmins some time in 1997.
