Posted by: j on Mar 21, 2015

Toronto Crypto is very pleased to announce that we will be in attendance for a CryptoParty at George Brown’s Digifest this year! This will give us a chance to show off our new CryptoParty workstations (Tor Browser, Mobile, PGP and File Encryption). Location of Digifest is the Corus Quay building, May 9th starting at 10AM and running until 4pm. We’ll be there in full force and most importantly: Admission is $FREE$!

TorontoCrypto Content && RSS Feeds

Posted by: j on Mar 9, 2015

A good portion of my last week was figuring out how to best deliver TorontoCrypto’s content. Thankfully, having finally sat down and spent some time with RSS, we now have two streams of content to add to your RSS stream or reader. If you are new to the idea of streamlining media, check out this article on RSS and how to amalgamate your news.

We’ve also added the CCLA, OpenMedia and Hacklab streams to our Twitter as we respect these organizations immensely.

Bill C-51 pending, this Summer already has plenty of great things in store for privacy in Toronto!

I2P meetup and CTA

Posted by: j on Dec 27, 2014

We’re very excited to announce that Toronto Crypto will be closely working with the I2P team in expanding the network’s reach. Some of us are strong believers in I2P’s fundamentals and believe that I2P’s wall-garden approach arguably makes for a more sustainable darknet. Even though some media attention has drawn attention to the network as of late I2P is still vastly unknown by the general populace.

The goal with this I2P initiative is to set a road map for creating applications and avenues for people to better interact with the I2P network. We’ll be hosting an event for the I2P crew in the summer so If you’re interested in getting involved, join us on IRC.

Thanks for a great CryptoParty!
