About the North Bay Internet Society

The North Bay Internet Society (NBIS) was founded in January 2007 to support the technology community in the north bay.

The goals of the Society are to:

  • Provide a meeting place for local folks with shared interest
  • Spur dialog on subjects related to the Internet and entrepreneurial tech businesses
  • Have fun!

Michael Slater created the Society and organize the meetings for the first two or three years. Since then, Janet Zagoria has been the primary organizer.

Meetings are usually on the second Thursday of the month, in the Tarsier room at O'Reilly's offices in north Sebastopol, starting at 7:00 (socializing at 6:30).

Join Us

Membership is open to anyone who shares our interests and all meetings are free.

You don't need to be a member to join the meetings — just show up! But if you want to get the announcement mailings and participate in online discussions, you need to join.

For the moment, we still have a Yahoo Groups mailing list, which you can join by sending an email to northbayinternet-subscribe (at) yahoogroups.com. But if you just want meeting announcements, you can subscribe to the Blog RSS feed.
