I was wondering what would be the top 3 or top 5 themes for this event in my community. So far, thinking of:
1. password management
2. email security (spam/phishing/viruses)
3. web browsers and adblockers (cookies, trackers, ...)
I was also planing on talking only about #opensource solutions.
What do you think?
OnionShare 2.2 is out of development and working nicely. I'm able to host my personal website as an onion hidden service! woohoo!

@cypherpunk Working on it!
Currently preparing a milter for OpenPGP that allows sending out encrypted emails when all recipient (which for automated emails is usually just one) has a qualified OpenPGP key published. For now that means WKD, but more is planned. It's early early alpha and breaks on lots of occasions, but slowly getting there:
😳 After reading the mailvelope issue about PGP/MIME, I'm amazed to see how little people think about interoperability for this extension. (The people in the issue, not necessarily the developers of mailvelope.)

It's a sad thing to see .-.

What are argument for and against Cyberweapons proliferation?
My state on this subject is not yet determined.
I am on the same time against some international law that would prevent undeveloped parties from fair game in cyber war. But at the same time this law might potentially save us from irresponsible use of dangerous cyber weapons all across the world.

Funny how nobody warning about DoH ever notices that "organisations" could indeed run their own DoH/DoT servers and implement any policy they like https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/dutch-govt-explains-the-risks-behind-dns-over-https-move/
Main limitation being of course that it would require ten year long transition program as your whole "organisational" DNS runs on some ancient crap commercial or cloud nameserver, who only heard about DoH/DoT in 2019 and it's just as new to them as say IPv6
Centralised #DoH is bad for privacy, in 2019 and beyond
