The Harvard Computer Society has been a "driving force" in the development and deployment of computers at Harvard since well before the fall of the Soviet Union (or the very least, we've met weekly to talk about computers and technology and eat pizza since at least 1983). We do whatever we're interested in (and, by proxy, whatever you're interested in, if you join us) but we have a number of ongoing and currently active projects that tend to consume our time. See About HCS for a description of several of them.
We meet weekly to discuss technology, Harvard policy and the stuff we're working on, as well as to work on projects. We also bring in speakers from current researchers in computer science to people who are famous for their ideas or businesses (think Steve Ballmer, Steve Wozniak, Richard Stallman and, most recently, Larry Wall). Plus, we just turned 25 this year!
