Beansec Tonight at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge

Looking forward to the BeanSec meetup this evening at the Middlesex Lounge near MIT - hope to see other like-minded folks there...

After the Middlesex Lounge, possibly things will move over to the Asgard pub. The Asgard is named after the Irish gun-running boat which smuggled rifles from Germany to Irish rebels in 1914, sailed by Erskine Childers, an Englishman who later became Ireland's president. There is also a strong Boston connection to Childers, related to when he borrowed a spanner (or rather, "wrench") in Beacon Hill in 1903:
In autumn 1903 Childers travelled to the United States as part of a reciprocal visit between the Honourable Artillery Company of London and the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts of Boston. At the end of the official visit he elected to remain and explore New England on a hired motor cycle. One day by chance the machine broke down outside the Beacon Hill home of Dr Hamilton Osgood, a prominent physician in the city. Childers diffidently knocked to borrow a spanner but, as a visitor with the celebrated HAC, he was invited in for dinner and introduced to Dr Osgood's daughter, Mary Alden ("Molly") Osgood. The liberal English author and the well read republican heiress found each other congenial company. The hospitable Dr Osgood organised the rest of Childers's stay, with much time shared with Molly, and the pair were married at Boston's Trinity Church on 5 January 1904.

History lesson over - hoping for some good Cloud and security conversation this evening.
