A practical workshop for anyone interested in keeping their digital lives private.

Bring your laptops, desktops, netbooks, tablets and phones - we'll help you secure them and your communications:

- full disk encryption for your computers and memory sticks;

- encrypted email, text messages, IM on all your devices;

- anonymous browsing and tracker-avoidance;

- censorship circumvention;

- password generation, databases and management;

- keysigning / extending the web-of-trust.

If you have knowledge and skills to contribute in these or related areas please come along and share them with us!


- ad-hoc discussion of the laws that govern who can access your stuff and when; and, at some point in the evening,

- our regular round-up and discussion of the latest digital-rights news, opinions, and happenings.

You don't have to sign up to come along - but if you do it helps us to avoid exceeding the venue capacity. Pseudonymous sign-ups are fine!

Drop in for a few minutes to ask a question or stay all evening and chat about privacy, security, and the intarwebz.
