First, I want to encourage anyone with a meeting idea to email admin@ 
with a proposal . . . there's lots of things people are doing out there 
that warrant a meeting.

Second, I strongly recommend anyone planning to attend the Jan 9th 
meeting with Angelos
(http://www.nycbug.org/index.php?NAV=Home;SUBM=10141) to read the 
associated PDF referenced at the end of the post.

Once in a while, we're trying to do meetings like his SSARES meeting, 
much like Matthew Burnsides' earlier in the year.  These are not typical 
NYCBUG hands-on production-related meetings. . . rather they are more 
research or academic in the inclination.

These meetings force us to not just dig into our experiences, but rather 
to think about larger technology issues in a research-driven manner. . . 
a bit more abstract, but nevertheless extremely useful.

I think in many ways, what USENIX has done with meeting or paper topics 
such as these, provides a nice model.

The point of envisioning a secure email system isn't about Postfix v 
Sendmail, etc., but rather to begin to piece together models that 
address some of the inherent problems with email systems *in general* 
right now.

On that note, again, check out the paper, as it will make our discussion 
that much more useful at the meeting.
