I traveled to Brussels for another set of meetings at the European

discussed the topics of surveillance on camera for his next film.

The Silk Road was busted and as a result, I was again bombarded with

revealed the existence of NSA spying on the German Chancellor Merkel:


I did a lot of Tails support for some high profile Tor users in October.

All the best,
