so what's the action coming out, are we going to have an nb-wot?

was just about to say the same thing


Does anyone know if there's any facilities in GPG for enabling this or should we just keep a public list?

the normal keyservers will do

i think x is taking charge on his idea of these classes to use and supplement the EFF docs he linked: https://ssd.eff.org/


Surveillance Self-Defense Tips, Tools and How-tos for Safer Online Communications

we just need a critical mass of people with 3 marginally-trusted signatures

The tricky thing is that we want to communicate other information once we've bootstrapped GPG-trust

if anyone's in the space right now, I'm sitting on the couch by the window. let's sign.

Like signal info, etc.

how long are you going to be there?

I'll be there in a few hours

a few hours probably

I mean, I might get off the couch

I don’t plan to get into PGP at the workshop. I’m going to share the Willie Brown catchphrase “the e- in e-mail stands for evidence” and encourage people basically not to write too much sensitive stuff in email, and if they do, to delete the email afterwards rather than storing it in an encrypted form.

I should get off my couch too

It would have been much better for the DNC to regularly delete all their emails rather than try to learn PGP.

I think tor, tails, etc can be useful without any special knowledge though

Deleting emails works! It’s a trusted strategy used by mayors and governors nationwide.

mayors and governors who are at no serious risk of being under wiretap

without a prior corruption investigation

Oh yeah: Tor, Signal, installing updates, 2FA, Tails in some cases, maybe Onionshare, that kind of stuff.

this is getting wiki sized
