Hello David,

Thanks for making the call for this. Is the CFP still open? Do you
happen to have developed more ideas on what things we could perhaps talk
about? I'm also going and I can talk about Library Freedom Project and
our effort to bring online privacy to public spaces.

Only in the last year as I started going to more public gatherings, I've
realized we at Tor are evolving so fast and everyone is excited to know
more about what we do and how we're doing it. We could do updates on Tor
in literally every single conference and I guarantee it's never gonna
get old ;) but let's be more creative than that! :D

Another thing that came up on IRC yesterday, was the possibility of
getting a booth (table) at HOPE for Tor, which remains Shari's and
Roger's decision to make.

Anyways, I just wanted to say I'm in! Let's do this!
