Decentralized Internet & Privacy
Apart from PUBLIC, this year the DIP devroom is showcasing @panayotis’s MAZI Project and the Openki the platform for open education, as well as a handful of decentralized projects: the RIPE ATLAS probe, the Tor and I2P networks, OpenDHT and the RING network, data distribution in the RetroShare network, a presentation of Matrix novelties such as Communities and user interface to cryptographic functionality, two Framasoft presentations that follow each other (on PeerTube and Contributopia) and two SecureDrop presentations that don’t follow each other (why?), as well as CryptPad (and how not to trust the server), Privacy Score (and how to trust a server), the LEAP project, and EteSync, an AGPL tamper-proof journal system.
100% 94.1% White Male
's talk scheduled for Sunday, February, 4th in room H.1301 (Cornil) at 09:30 ( in the morning) That’s pretty early for a Sunday, yes? But what’s more troubling is that the whole day schedule which counts 17 interventions will be presented, correct me if I’m wrong, by
17 16 white males and one female.
What is this supposed to tell about the state of the decentralized Internet effort? As far as I’m concerned, I’ve been talking to several women about these issues over the years, like @sva, @SDD, @nana, @ksenia, @heathermarsh, Demos, Julia, Andrea, Krista, Tanja Lange, etc. Why is it that our community is ceaselessly reproducing the same old paternalist bias? I’m trying to convince @natacha or @SDD to make the presentation instead of me, which is not given yet, since @natacha told me she wouldn’t be there based on the 100% male line-up.
