Dear all,

It was great meeting some of the off.networks
people at transmediale and being part of a
very interesting session with a full house!

I believe that this was a successful blind date

We offered a quick and to the point overview of
different initiatives and perspectives. The audience
showed interest and we had some good questions,
like on the possible "illegitimate" uses of such
technology, the barriers to entry for non-savvy
people, the issue of digital divide and more.

Thanks to Daphne for making this happen and
for a great job in curating the transmediale
festival!

 From my side, the next "official" appointment will
be at this workshop: http://diynetworking.net/

I am trying to find a solution for offering some
free registrations to hackers, artists, and activists
(the fee is rather high since most academics have
abundant funding to participate in such events :-)).
If you express your interest it would be easier for
me to manage this, but still I cannot promise
anything at this point.

The workshop is co-located with at a well-known
engineering conference, and thus subject to its
policies, where the focus is more on the technological,
scientific, and business perspective than the political
one.

However, there will be many good people around
and I think that it is worth to build bridges between
academics and hackers, because the stakes
are high, and as I keep repeating we need to join
forces if we want to compete with the big tech
corporations for empowering citizens to get more
control over their (local) communications and data.

See you soon!

Panayotis.


P.S. Here is a photo from the event:

I apologize for the missing logos of resync, qaul.net,
and datafield, but putting this slide as the background
of the discussion was a last minute decision. Next time
we will be better organized

Thanks everyone and especially Panos for organizing us together. It was so
good to meet everyone, even if it was for a brief time. 

Hope to see everyone soon, at some time and place :)

About librelist

Hi again,

Just to add that I sent the previous e-mail with the event
photo attached and it was rejected by the list server
(and copying the text from my sent folder to resend
removed the smilies :-)). So, no matter how small,
attachments are not allowed.

I would like to take the opportunity to inform the
new members that librelist.com is a rather alternative
mailing list server. There is no administrator on our side,
and there is no way for any of us to know who is "listening"
(as is the case with offline networks as well :-))

This is why we have started a "list members" thread
to make it easier for newcomers to have an idea of
who is around: 
http://librelist.com/browser//off.networks/2014/12/1/list-members/

Another peculiarity of the list is the fact that it cannot be
"cc'ed" but needs to be the only recipient of your e-mails.

Finally, I Just realized that we have a very interesting and relevant
"neighbor" list: http://librelist.com/browser/offlineedu/ :-)
