I've done it before and it's a presentation with slides and a lot of discussion between. I was looking more though at how the panels are run (there were hundreds last year, with over 4000 people attending) it's usually a moderator and a panel of 3 or so people. I just wanted to ask/ suggest if the PP has ever pa 22:03 < paper_waves> to being issues of surveillance/cryptography to the greater activist community 22:03 < jokeefe> how about this: anyone who wants to work on topic ideas stick around and hash them out and those folks can run with it. pirates don’t ask permission and all 22:03 < jokeefe> we can rope the NY Pirates as well 22:04 < noe> paper_waves: that sounds awesome 22:04 < paper_waves> ** dismantling the surveillance state 22:04 < jokeefe> ++good 22:04 < srevilak> paper_waves: I like it 22:05 < srevilak> As jamie said, we like to let people run with their own ideas, and support each other as much as possible 22:05 < noe> People do ask us to run crypto FAQs and how-tos, but I've not seen a Pirate do a panel on it. 22:05 < noe> I would support that. 22:06 < jokeefe> discuss details by email? 22:06 < paper_waves> I'm still figuring out how it would look, if it would be a separate panel from the workshop I've proposed, or if i would change my own idea.. or both? lots to plan/ think for it 22:06 < paper_waves> I just heard about the event at libre planet. It seems like the biggest event for the political left in the country 22:07 < noe> Makes a lot of sense for us to go. 22:07 < paper_waves> it could be a serious opportunity to get crypto ideas into a much wider audience, especially other radical-minded folks 22:07 < jokeefe> aye 22:09 < srevilak> I think we're past time. Motion to adjourn? 22:09 < paper_waves> if anyone wants to talk more about it or help plan it, you can email me at paper_waves@... and then I will add all of us to one email thread 22:09 < noe> srevilak: so moved 22:09 < jokeefe> 2nd 22:09 < jokeefe> all in favor? 22:10 < noe> aye 22:10 < jokeefe> sending introduction email paper_waves 22:10 < paper_waves> yay! 22:10 < srevilak> will post transcript
