I liked the talk and found it pretty mesh related,
because Daniel said for what GNUnet could be useful in Open Wireless
He simply presented a newcomer in that field.
I must say i found the text presentation cool!:)
Though i am more used to traditional presentations, i didn'
t miss it for a minute!

If people go to talks they cannot test.
Maybe next time reduce the talks, maybe more lightening talks instead.
and have kind of daily meeting talking about the testing progress and plans.

 Thanks to the cjdns and
>> MaidSafe people for their restraint.

You are thankful that they did not participate?
Are newcomers wanted or unwanted at the Battlemesh?
After Snowden what's wrong with developing Crypto Routing?
If one really cares for privacy that's THE answer.

Having Rust rolling in OpenWrt and getting MaidSafe

Great! :)

"There are many fights more important than the fight over how the
internet is
regulated. Equity in race, gender, sexual preference; the widening
wealth gap;
the climate crisis – each one far more important than the fight over the
for the net.
Except for one thing: the internet is how every one of these fights will
be won
or lost. Without a free, fair and open internet, proponents of urgent
for justice will be outmaneuvered and outpaced by their political opponents,
by the power-brokers and reactionaries of the status quo.
The internet isn’t the most important fight we have; but it’s the most
