Some potential topics for discussion:

  • how the LA community can engage w/ tech security issues & resist subversion
  • vectors for advocacy
  • efficacy (or otherwise) of various "secure" webmail providers
  • hacking on tor, libpurple OTR, etc.
  • secure mobile communications (e.g. [6])
  • using OTR chat in Linux
  • running a tor bridge in Linux
  • running a secure SIP server in Linux
  • using tails, the privacy-focused live OS based on Debian
