5-minute Lighting Talks

This month, lightning talks will be 5 minutes each. There will be lots of time later in the day for everyone to break into groups and learn more about each topic.

If you're interested in presenting, add yourself below.

12:30 PM: PGP, Duncan Smith

I'll explain the principle of the Web of Trust. In the freeform chat time, I'd love to have a keysigning.

Inner workings of public-key cryptography are out of scope for this talk. If you're interested in them, there's plenty of information out there.  :)

12:35 PM: TBA

12:40 PM: TBA

12:45 PM: Jaron, Fun with Firefox Extensions

While not Linux-specific, I will present several useful extensions for the FireFox web browser. Hopefully you'll find them useful as well. :) See for an outline.

12:50 PM - 1:20 PM Quiz, Raffle, prizes, give aways, by Bri Hatch

1:30 PM - 2:00 PM: Workshop & Freeform chat

The rest of the day will be open for people to chat, learn more about what they heard in the lighting talks, and get hands-on support with your hardware. Got a busted up Windows install on your computer that you need help getting rid of? Bring it along!

Duncan will attempt to coordinate an informal key-signing. If you wish to participate, it would be a good idea to email him an ascii-armored version of your key ( More info on User:Chronomex.
