Would you like to help me explain Tor, and how we relate to privacy,
to researchers and government agencies at the FTC PrivacyCon event in
Washington DC on Jan 11?

Lorrie asked me to sign us up, because she wants Tor to be represented
there. It would be great if it's not just me. :)

One paragraph description of the organization's interest in privacy

The Tor Project is a free-software non-profit project to build an
anonymity toolkit used by individuals, companies, governments, and law
enforcement around the world:

Tor is central to a myriad of research collaborations supported by
the National Science Foundation and related funders. On the metrics
and measurement side, we're working on how to safely and ethically
collect usage statistics about the Tor network. On the network side,
we're developing architectural improvements like stronger crypto
in next-generation onion services, and ways to detect and resist
denial-of-service attacks on Tor without impacting user privacy. On the
censorship side, we're deploying a global infrastructure where users
launch censorship tests and safely report their results. And on the
application side, we're building better browser behavior so users can
control what information websites get to learn about them.

The Tor network has grown since its start in 2002 to several million
active users pushing over 80 Gbps of traffic. The Tor Project has a
staff of 28 developers, researchers, and advocates, plus several dozen
volunteers who help out on a daily basis.
