HOPE Conference. Nice turnout for H and BenC's cryptoparty. Did a 90 minute spot on Radio Statler. Partial recording at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvKmzMx5cd8. ~20 people came to Jamie's (unscheduled) talk on CCTV camera mapping. Had a talk with someone who was planning to organize a pirate party in SFO -- he had some interesting ideas for local organizing: advocate Free software to safe on licensing costs, and use public records requests to expose corruption. Like Massachusetts, SFO has a one-party system.
IPT response. We discuss draft copy of the response, and apply some minor edits. Steve will submit response later this week.

Esp. the kinds of changes that are improvements :) 21:21 < srevilak> If the general gist is okay, I'll turn it into a PDF, make it look pretty, and email to IPT later this week. 21:22 < jokeefe> looks fine to me 21:23 < srevilak> I read the entire judgement while riding home. Was slightly amused that the subjects of the tribunal were concerned about having to deal with the number of respondents. 21:23 < srevilak> There were only ~ 663 respondents. 21:24 < jokeefe> seriously? 21:24 < jokeefe> wow 21:25 < jokeefe> any other comments? 21:26 < Kendra> It looks ok to me 21:27 < jokeefe> ahoy 21:27 < MosesMPP> blah, ayoy all - rural internets a bummer 21:27 < srevilak> Check out paragraph 35.

GCHQ is the respondent 21:30 < srevilak> Paragraph 40 is also interesting. Appears that surveilling millions of people is not a burden, but responding to 663 that are concerned about surveillance is a burden 21:30 < MosesMPP> love it so far 21:31 < srevilak> Thanks MosesMPP 21:32 < jokeefe> if no other comments, then you should be all set sending it srevilak 21:33 < srevilak> jokeefe: will do 21:33 < MosesMPP> how do i do that? 21:33 < MosesMPP> oh nvm 21:34 < jokeefe> Aaron James is going door-to-door on Saturday 4pm. details at https://www.facebook.com/events/496359393903288/ 21:34 <@papegaai> Title: End of July Canvassing (at www.facebook.com) 21:35 < Bluestreak> Sigh.
