Tor Project sessions for the Feira at Global Gathering

We will be attending the Global Gathering 2023 in Portugal (September 15-17):

The event will have a Feira every day during the afternoon (13:30-20:20 local time). Tor will have a booth at the Feira which we are happy to share with our community. Come and meet us, we will demo our work and work from our community and host circles of conversations every day at the Onion table. The goal is to have some pre-scheduled circles and leave time for ad-hoc ones.

Please keep checking this post for updates!

These are the Circles of Conversation that we are planning at the Onion table.

First Day - Sept 15

  • 14:00-15:00 → How to contribute to the Tor project - Our welcoming circle! Come meet Tor people and learn more about the project and how you can contribute to it.

  • 17:00-18:00 → Shaping the Tor advocates program - We are starting to organize a “Tor advocates program” and we want to host a circle for people who train others on Tor to learn about this idea and give us feedback on it.

Second Day - Sept 16

  • 15:30-16:30 → Sharing between anti-censorship tools builders - We would like to invite other people working on building anti-censorship tools for a circle to share and build collaboration.

  • 17:00-18:00 → Experience of censored users - Members of our Anti-Censorship team will be hosting a circle for users to come and share their experience using our circumvention tools so we can learn what is working and how to improve what is not working.

Third Day - Sept 17

  • 14:00-15:00 → Sharing lesson on usability research / user needs - We made big changes at Tor to have the user as the center of everything we do. In 2017 we started to implement usability research as the key director for our decisions on development and organization strategy. We would like to share about what we learned during this process and how it has been beneficial to us.

  • 17:00-18:00 → NoScript conversation - NoScript is a critical piece of privacy online that ever user interacts with. At this circle the creator of NoScript will be sharing information about the project’s status and future plans. We would like to invite you to join the conversation to share your feedback or ask questions about NoScript and its integration in the Tor Browser.
