Less is more! This is pretty much our philosophy regarding cryptoPartys. We'd rather see less people attending a cryptoParty of ours and dragging off with some new knowledge and implementing it, than a big crowd going home without having gained that much of new intel.
Our latest cryptoParty / security awareness conference in Ettelbréck ended exactly like the first one described above: 15 people - so no terrible big crowd - who had learned something that evening.
Topics like Apps to secure SmartPhones, Browser alternatives, Tor and much more were part of the program.
You might want to see the presentation, read the summary of recommended tips or simply have look at some impressions from the evening, so please visit the according wiki page. ;)
Freedom of Information has always been one of our most important concerns and still is. Whether treaties are being called TAFTA, TTIP, TISA or whatever else, should and need to be negotiated in public and not behind closed doors.
Besides, we fear that a second ACTA treaty could be bootlegged in these.
As of we knew about these treaties, we demanded a full-stop of them, as it opposes every democratic and values we hold high!
Impressions from the day itself:
We are about to update the entire wiki an fill it with content over the past 5 years of our work. This is a process which does not happen from one moment in time to the other a few days later, but we'll get to it.
