May will be busy

May is going to be very busy. Besides helping the Free Software Foundation with International Day Against DRM, we are helping with three cryptoparties.

Point to Point Camp, this Saturday

This Saturday, May 2nd, we will be running the all-day Cryptoparty Corner at Point-to-Point Camp. It will be a very exciting unconference. Some of the confirmed speakers are: Julia Angwin, James Bamford, Malavika Jayaram, Bruce Schneier, Wendy Seltzer, Chris Soghoian, Trevor Timm and Marcy Wheeler

It will be at the MIT Media Lab, 75 Amherst Street, Cambridge. The closest public transit is the Kendall Sq. MBTA Red Line stop. You can register in advance or find out more at

International Day Against DRM, Wednesday, May 6

The Free Software Foundation will bring attention to the problems of DRM (Digital Restrictions Management) as part of the International Day Against DRM on Wednesday, May 6th. They are distributing information about about DRM to customers in front of an Apple store packed with DRM-encumbered media.

They will meet at 6:15pm in front of the Back Bay Apple Store at 815 Boylston Street, a few blocks from the Copley T Station. Afterwards they plan to go for food and drinks at a near by Middle Eastern/American restaurant called Jaffa and talk about further actions.

Together Boston, Sunday, May 17

We are again running a cryptoparty for the Together Boston music festival on Sunday, May 17th. Danger!Awesome, a maker space, will be hosting it. It runs from noon to 4pm. Danger!Awesome is at 645 Massachusetts Avenue location in Central Sq., Cambridge.
