I have it on good authority that at the weekly sudo hangout tonight at 7 pm
there will be mac & cheese of several varieties, including a gluten free
version, provided by the very generous rcsheets!
So come hang out, maybe bring something to drink, or maybe something to
show and tell?
I just received a request from the people over at The Village, the
encampment/occupation that was set up last week at the park on MLK & 36th.
They wanted me to ask if people at the Sudoroom were able to help them get
Wi-Fi set up over there. At one of last week's Assemblies Matt Senate
suggested that Sudomesh was probably able to provide hardware for setting
up an access point.
The latest info I have (a few days old) is that Eli's across the street
would be willing to share their connection, but I'm still verifying if that
Would anyone interested to help be willing to either respond here, or
preferably via Signal (my number is 510-771-7463).
Thanks, I will report back once I know more details.
Hi Erik!!!!!! so nice to hear from you!
I would love for you to have the event at Omni!! we have a booking system and
here's a link. I just looked at the calendar for you (which is the first step)
and it looks to me like February 19th is clear!!!!!!! That's assuming you want
the main ballroom, which i think would be awesome.
don't worry about the second tuesday thing.. just say that Jake from Sudoroom
wants to sponsor this event and that we want to reserve the ballroom for that
date. As soon as your request comes in, i'll push to get it confirmed.
I'm assuming we can collect donations of some kind to give to the Omni for use
of the space? Just whatever is normal for an event like this at Gilman i
guess. That's one of the questions on the form you'll see at the above link.
Also, sudoroom will be able to supply a lot of cool electronic STUFF for the
tables, so i think people who come to this will be very pleased.
note: sudoroom constantly has a big e-waste pile, and if you think the event
will add to the unwanted electronics pile, we should plan for someone to take a
truck to Universal Waste in Fruitvale after the event to clear it all out.

We have also curated a list of Liberationtech content at
If you prefer to read our list as a newspaper, you could always check our

Our Liberationtech blog has been dead for a while, but we are working on
reviving it. If you are interested in helping out, please let us know.
We also have a series of listservs on topics related to Liberationtech. The
most important lists are the following:
- Events: https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/listinfo/libera
- Jobs: https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/listinfo/liberationtech-jobs
- CfP: https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/listinfo/liberationtech-cfp
For the aforementioned lists, we try to compile a list of all events, job
opportunities, and call for papers related to Liberationtech from all over
It's not a comprehensive list, so your assistance would be helpful. If you
hear of a job, event, or cfp that would be of benefit to Liberationtech
subscribers, please let us know.
Finally, we want to take Liberationtech to the next level. What that means,
we don't know. But the world has changed a lot since we started back in
2008: Censorship is on the rise. Internet freedom is on the decline. And we
have become much more of a community of hackers and cybersecurity
professionals who seek to protect vulnerable communities around the world.
So if you have ideas of projects you would like to see us take on, please
let us know. We want the Liberationtech community to drive the process. Any
idea is welcome. Dream big or small. Just let us know how you think we can

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We don't know whether the
City will fund it, but we have grassroots volunteers ready to help.
Also, I should note the City owns its own cable company.
