We need something that can generate interest but also informative. I suggest
2 steps.

1. Perhaps a webpage with disclosing / discussing current happenings /
vulnerabilities / best practice.
2. Mandate few individuals to run & co-ordinate ­ culminating in a Articles
of association 
3. Host an event with other IT security association (choose one
strategically) to leverage publicity & membership.
Kind Regards,

Thanks for all the replies so far, I am struck by the geographic diversity
though - it makes it quite challenging when trying to organise something

this mailing list can perhaps underpin more focused get-togethers.

Judging by the replies it seems that the usual suspects are aware of this
list - which is a start.

* Lets take this up a notch, if you had to add your 2 cents, where would you
say we start?

I have contacted Kate Hartmann to find out if anyone ever registered as a
chapter leader and to answer the question of how many members this list

OWASP deals a lot of education and awareness, judging by the friends that
replied I am sure a good outreach to large enterprises and dev-shops can be

Thanks again for the replies!
