About BBLISA

BBLISA was founded in July 1992 to provide a forum for meetings and presentations of interest to system and network administrators in Boston, MA, and the surrounding areas.

While "LISA" stands for Large Installation System Administration, BBLISA is for administrators of both large and small networks.

Membership in the group is free and becoming a member is as easy as subscribing to one of our mailing lists.

The name Back Bay LISA was adopted after the sister organization "Bay LISA", in the San Francisco bay area. Back Bay is an area of Boston, and Boston being back east and also on a bay made the name seem appropriate.

We have a list of sites that are of interest to System Administrators.
