In memory of hacker activist Aaron Swartz, let’s get together for a weekend to work on projects for social/political reform, information freedom, preserving our rights on the Internet, and making the world we want to live in. Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether or not you code. This event is being organized by User:Yan, so get in touch if you have questions.
We’ll be working on several open source projects simultaneously with developers from Tor, EFF, Freedom of the Press Foundation, Mozilla, and other organizations (see projects list above). All of them need your help, no matter who you are! Come find out how you can help us fight mass surveillance and protect whistleblowers, or work on something important that you’ve been putting off for years, or simply hang out and learn how to use encryption.
Note that the event kicks off at the Internet Archive on Nov 8 but will be at Noisebridge for the rest of the weekend.
If you’re coming to the Internet Archive event on Fri, please RSVP via https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ExJpzJY5uy8apNJGK8qPROgfoNXr0u1JdtaL7V8psKA/viewform. No registration is needed for the hackathon at Noisebridge.
