CryptoParty

Join us at our monthly CryptoParty gathering! What is a CryptoParty? For more information, check this out: [http://www.cryptoparty.in/index]

It's an informal, non-commercial gathering where folks can discuss select topics in privacy, information security and technology.

Some of these topics include:

Anonymity: is pure anonymity possible in the Brave New World?

Browser Security: setting tweaks, hacks, considerations

Countersurveillance: techniques to baffle and thwart your adversaries

Dead Drops: USB and otherwise [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_dead_drop]

Encryption: for email and hard drives

Internet Cash Schemes: bitcoin, advantages and disadvantages

Steganography: hidden messages in plain sight

Symbolic Communication: a public post of red flowers means ...

Virtual Private Networks: how do you use one and how effective are they?

Whistleblowing: considerations when leaking sensitive information

If you're at all the least bit concerned about the government scooping up all your internet activity to build a detailed dossier on you and kept on file indefinitely ready to use whenever you get labeled a "terrorist" - then CryptoParty is for you.

Please consider a $5 donation towards our internet and legal defense fund!

    Besides our ideas and good conversation, is there anything tangible I should specifically bring?

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
