Email Encryption for Beginners
Hydra Books - 34 Old Market StreetSaturday May 25th 4:00pm
The first of a monthly (last Saturday of each month) computer workshop aiming to provide jargon free workshops on useful programs. No experience necessary, but please if you have a laptop bring it along.
A non encrypted e-mail message sent through the Internet is like a post card without an envelope: postpeople, neighbours and anybody else who can put their hands on it will easily read the message you've written. Unlike a post card an email is copied (rather then moved) to many different computers on it's travels. All of these computers owners we can't possibly trust and know. This makes me feel uncomfortable and is not necessary with simple email encryption.
When you use a website (like Facebook, gmail or even crabgrass) to send a message you have little to no control at all over the delivery process, its like asking someone you've not meet to go and read your post card loudly near the front door of your mates house!
Certain organization (e.g. journalist, unions, activists, etc) have a responsibility to transmit sensitive messages securely and currently do not. Don't think what does this one email say about me (or it's recipient) think rather when examined on mass over time (most emails are stored indefinitely these days) what does this reveal about the way we live.
Still not convinced see this brilliant summary.
Beginning with a short (10 minutes) explanation on why email encryption ought to be common place. Followed by talking through the use of enigmail add-on for thunderbird that makes using GPG easy.
The aim is to by the end of the workshop to be able to email anyone else who makes it to the workshop with out the email being interceptable by a third party.
It would save time if you had thunderbird setup and receiving your emails. If you already use email encryption and want to help or share your key please come by.

VoiceOver is coming to Bristol to host TWO screenings & discussions! Riots Reframed hopes to add to the city’s rich history of rioting. Stokes Croft alone hosted two sets of riots in 2011 – the first was a warm-up in April, and the second was in unison with the nationwide summer riots. I’ll be making my way over to host the two screenings (Friday and Saturday), say a few words and hopefully exchange some fire with the people of Bristol! | Fahim.
Screening One: Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3QY | 24th May 2013 | 17:00 – 21:00
