Help setup a secure LAN on Saturday

by Long Haul Techie
Help the Long Haul set up their computers after the cops removed them last Wednesday
Are you a radical techie or just radical-techie-curious?

What are you doing on Saturday September 6th from noon until 6 pm? If you are free (and live in the Bay Area) a group of friends of the Long Haul are going to go to the Long Haul and help them set up a new public computer lab. Our intention is to take the donated computers (numbering about a half dozen now but hopefully at least a dozen by Saturday) and create a usable, secure, and open (as in Open Source Software) computing environment for the users of the Long Haul.

Some of the technologies we are planning on implementing include

-Full Hard Drive encryption

-Firefox Kiosk mode

-Tor

-OTR and pidgin

Anything you have to bring the project including your time, your old computers, your ideas would go a long way to helping out the Long Haul during this time of recovery from a raid, whose cause has yet to be determined.
