There's a fairly new group in Rhode Island, DC401, the local Defcon group. According to their website, "DC401 is a gathering for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as 'hacking'."

Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month in Providence at AS220. This month's presentation was by legendary security podcaster Paul Asadoorian (pauldotcom), on one of his favorite topics, hacking embedded devices. (Paul and co-host/cohort Larry Pesce co-authored "Linksys WRT54G Ultimate Hacking").

I'll be attending DC401 meetings as my schedule allows, if you are in the RI area I encourage you to check them out, too.
