#PirateCon2016: Thanks and welcome new Pirate Council!

Thanks to everyone who participated in Pirate Con 2016 last Saturday!  A big thank you to Aaron James for kicking off the conference, to Maya Shaffer for giving the end talk on the problems with Massachusetts FOIA laws and all of our other great speakers.

This was the first time we audio streamed one of our conferences.  Thanks to Steve Revilak and Kendra Moyer for making it possible.  We are working on streaming the next conference on video as well.  We are processing the audio and video we took and would love your help turning it into files we can upload to YouTube and torrent.

We have posted the one conference slide deck from Terra Friedrichs‘ Municipal Rights talk.  You can find a few pictures of the conference as well. We regret that the Cannabis Legalization talk did not occur, but that gave us more time for lightning talks.

We held elections for the Pirate Council and other positions.  Those elected were:

  • Captain – James O’Keefe
  • First Officer – Noelani Kamelamela
  • Quartermaster – Steve Revilak
  • Activism Director – Moses Sukin
  • US Pirate Party Representative – Moses Sukin

If you are interested in helping, we have other positions open.
