“Organise organically and chaotically. Have no clear leadership. Urge people to take on a sudo leadership role”


Governments around the world, are greatly increasing their surveillance of the Internet. Alongside a loss of the private sphere, this also represents a clear danger to basic civil liberties. The good news is that we already have the solution: encrypting communications makes it very hard, if not entirely impossible, for others to eavesdrop on our conversations. The bad news is that crypto is largely ignored by the general public, partly because they don't know about it, and partly because even if they do, it seems too much trouble to implement. (Text stolen here)

So lets go and have a party, and teach each other how to crypto!


Saturday, 6th of July, 4 PM (open end: “we can spend the rest of the time hanging out and doing things which you really wanted to do for long in chaotic way” and also “We can go and hack all night long, try things out and discuss!”)


Institute of Informatics & Communication (IIC), Delhi University South Campus (site temporarily down) :-(


Everyone is invited! Especially do not hesitate to join if you are not using any crypto at all (yet!)
