Explore Tor, NYC! Meetup and Q&A On Feb 15

 

The Tor community is vast and deep yet remains a virtual entity outside periodic physical events. Last December, we opted to change that. Continuing the thread launched by the Dec 7 meeting, we have another Tor event set for New York City on Thursday, February 15th.

Instead of looking at any single aspect of the Tor community, this meeting will feature a Q&A with Roger Dingledine and Alison Macrina. Roger, a Tor Co-Founder, and Alison, Community Team Lead, are both central to Tor development, and together they have a crisp picture of the project as a whole. They can often be found answering questions on IRC or conducting presentations for the Tor-curious, and Feb 15th, we’ll have them both live in person in NYC.

Like the initial meeting, this event will start with an introduction by the speakers, followed up by question-and-answer time. If you're curious about any particular aspect of Tor, this event is for you. 

We're looking forward to an engaging discussion where everyone leaves a little more knowledgeable.

The event will be held:

Feb 15, 2018 @ 6:45pm
NYU's Tandon School of Engineering
5 Metrotech Center Room LC-400
Brooklyn, NY 11201

We’ll gather at Circa Brewing Co, 141 Lawrence St, Brooklyn, NY 11201 after the event to continue our dialogue.

There is no admission fee nor RSVP required for this event.

could a nyc resident answer at these informal questions ?
- is the tor status a public or a private organization (an unknown sect/missing persons program) ?
- are the users under the u.s jurisdiction when they run/surf on Tor/onions (torblog is in the usa & ddg too)?
- are we a 'virtual' justification for your exemption (taxes)?
- if we are virtual american citizen ; what is the reason why we are not protected by the same laws than yourself (freedom of speech) ?
- if we are anonymous citizens who do not need to be 'registered' but profit of your labor, time, money why are you working for us (motivation) ?
- does the 501(3) allow you to be outside of the trouble of a normal life, to not be concerned ?
- why the mailing-list (any) are not set as onion-service (email-onions-service) ?
- are onion-blog-social-service made for "eyes only" & surf (posting could reveal your identity) ?
- why i cannot find a pizza, a stamp 'Tor' : easy to do, cheap, legal & could show you how many supporters you have (revenue) ?
- why the persons who are involved in the tor-projects post hostile/offensive contents on the tor-blog (impostors) ?
- NYC is a modern town , is tor compatible with an anonymous powerful mesh network (wifi_public place like u/libraries/mcdonald are not at all anonymous) ?
- the logo is not designed with art & not so much symbolic : why do you not replace it ?
- tor-team excluded (& volunteers of course), does a stable tor-community exist ?
- what is the reason why when i speak about tor or encryption(pgp) a silence & the contempt happen as answer ?
- will you provide gratis onions-soup at the meetup ?

This is going to be really interesting, I'm sure there's going to be news articles about it don't know how legit they'll be but whatever. You guys are open as hell about Q and As when it comes to 'citizens', but when it comes to government agencies let's lawyer up. Lol.

Very very glad to see the NYC meetups will continue! Because NYC has such a large number of network engineers and hackers, and has also experienced some drastic oppressive measures (such as the mass arrest of inaugural protesters), this is one of the best places in USA to promote TP's work and values.

In the past I criticized Roger for one very bad hiring decision (I trust measures have been taken to ensure nothing like that ever happens again), but I've also expressed appreciation for the fact that he provides a certain continuity with the early days, an institutional memory which I think has genuine value. Further, he is probably better than almost anyone else at explaining highly technical matters reasonably well for "ordinary" Tor users. He's been quiet here for a long time so I'm relieved to hear he's still with TP.
