Hi all, long time reader first time poster.
On the opposite side of that coin, I come from a computer science
undergrad background, where I have all the basics down, am very
comfortable with tcp/ip, C, and various scripting languages.  I'm
pretty new to the security field, but got a position with a great
little company and I can't help but think that there are about 1000
things that I don't have a clue about and sources of info are more or
less semi-public... out there, but not terribly easy to find.  I read
the big mailing lists to stay up on current issues (bugtraq, fd) and
keep up with the new advisories put out by secunia, sf, etc, but I
would like to get more involved in the security community.  Most of
the other mailing lists (sadly including this one) hosted by security
focus are pretty slow.

Any recommendations for good forums/mailing lists... even irc channels
I guess, ect to see whats going on in the community more than just
advisories.  This can be anything from pen test groups to vuln
researchers and so on.  At this point I'm in the soaking up stage and
just trying to get a little knowledge across the board in the security
field before I focus in on any one issue.
