At first, Concordia had a Hacker's Club. But due to lack of interest, it
was disbanded. Then after a period of a few months, a few of us found
ourselves in posession of a suprising ammount of hardware that someone
had given us. To avoid the problem of having to divide the "haul" up
between the people, we created a new organization to be the owner of the
whole pile. That way, everyone could play with all the toys without
hitting the "other person's stuff" taboo.
This new organization was the HCC. At first we told people what the
acronym stood for, but then we decided it would be more fun to keep
it secret. Concordia is a bit "authoritarian", and we wanted to do
something mildly obnoxous that didn't break any rules.
We hope to become an official ACM chapter very soon.
About our logo:
It was created by Tommy Johnson with Xv, Xpaint and chromakey (a program
which I wrote :-) from about 11:00pm to 5:30am using images of HCC computers,
and Concordia computers. The background is the horsehead nebula, from a
gif file I pulled off wuarchive. Cool eh? :-)
Current list of things that HCC dosn't stand for:
