i'd be very happy to run a talk, workshop and discussion on online
security issues for activists... i'll try to put together a bit more
of a blurb about this, but i've got a 15-30 minute (flexible!) talk
and a 75-90 minute workshop already prepared. i don't think that i
really need anything extra although if i'm doing a talk a projector
and screen would be good. and, seeing that there are already similar
things down, i'm happy to collaborate in running them :) i'm also very
happy to help facilitate meetings if they are required/occur.

any spare lifts going from london, anyone? otherwise, i suspect i'll
be training it in which case having a mobile to phone would be superb

tent, is there?
