The road ahead for network freedom

Tuesday 11/2/14
17:30 - 19:00

Tuesday February the 11th is the day we fight back against mass surveillance.
We are gathering at #hack66 to watch the talk “The road ahead for network freedom” given at FOSDEM 2014 by Christopher Allan Webber of GNU MediaGoblin.
Alternatively, if it is uploaded by then, we will watch NSA operation ORCHESTRA: Annual Status Report keynote speech by Poul-Henning Kamp.
In the end we will have a small discussion on what we could do in Cyprus to promote public awareness.

Description of the presentation at FOSDEM 2014 webpage:
Christopher Allan Webber of GNU MediaGoblin discusses the past, present, and future of free network services. Issues of network freedom have gained much attention over the last six years, and increasingly so both within and outside of the software freedom communities. Progress has been made, but present adoption shows we seem to have a ways to go. What opportunities and challenges face free network services? Ranging from licensing decisions, technical choices, protocols, deployment configuration, and how we message ourselves, many components inform the past, present and future of this field. Join Christopher Allan Webber of GNU MediaGoblin in talking about what can be done so that network freedom can be something that everyone can feasibly enjoy.
