Ok thanks all for the comments and offers for help! I've had helped from Nima
here on this first draft of a talk at HOPE "a la State of the Onion" but not
being that talk bit for bit.


I'm also juggling with the idea of submitting a second talk on much more
technical things because oh my we have so many things to say and there are
lots of very curious, knowledgeable and wise people at HOPE on the technical
side. Here are two ideas for a talk.

1) Directory Authority

Again, as I said in an previous email on that thread, this is a very
interesting subject in my opinion and could be fascinating in many ways.
Uncover this black box of Tor.

2) Onion "Hidden" Service

Classic but with the upcoming next generation work is a big step forward in
fixing lots of issues of the current system. We'll also have me, special and
possibly asn at HOPE which is a good crowd for a hs talk :). Furthermore, by
the end of July, we'll have made progress on that front.

Please, cast your vote 1) or 2)? In all seriousness, the input from anyone
will be useful here so we don't end up doing something uberly too complicated
with a 55 minutes talk or even worse, very boring. Also, "a second talk is not
needed" is also a valid answer if you think so.

(HOPE has yet announced details for a "booth" so pending...)
