Michael Noack (of the LDP) is organizing a conference in Adelaide on the 19th August and has asked me to provide a workshop on digital privacy. Can I please have some assistance? I would like both ideas and some extra volunteers, please?
A copy of the email is below:
I’m organising a conference-style event on Sat 19 August and have lined up pro-digital-freedom Senator Leyonhelm and some other speakers.
I’m wonder if you (or someone you know) would be able to do a talk and workshop on digital privacy.
I would love someone to talk about technology like end-to-end encryption messaging, VPNs, etc.
I would then love a workshop where people can actually get advice about which company/options to use, have them buy the product (if applicable) and then installing and using it. It would be great to have everyone at the conference for example installing an app like ‘Signal’ and using it to improve their privacy.
VPN’s people may not want to buy on the spot at the workshop but we could provide an account they could use for the workshop to demonstrate how it works.
Because this is the first time I’ve done the conference it’s not a big budget event, but we’ll cover the speakers entry and lunch (and maybe a drink), but hopefully after this conference it’s a success and we’ll be able to pay speakers also for their time.
