The Open Internet Tools Project (OpenITP) is a collection of open source projects that help build a truly unfettered internet -- private, anonymous and resistant to control. In the week before HOPE in New York City, OpenITP has partnered with FreedomBox, InformSec and ISOC-NY to host a circumvention tools hackfest. OpenITP's James Vasile writes:
"We've got four days to plan, code and learn! If you want to hack on anti-censorship or anti-surveillance tools, bring your project, bring your skills and bring your friends. This event will be focused on writing code and solving design problems. We won't have any long presentations (there will be enough of those at HOPE), though we will have lightning talks and will give away a door prize or two."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
