Announcement and News
=====================

Tahoe-LAFS Turning Six
- ----------------------
On Oct 22, 2012, Tahoe-LAFS will turn six (6) years old.  Zooko |zooko|
is looking to host a celebratory party in Boulder, CO and there is talk
of a party at `Noisebridge`_ for those in the San Francisco area.  I
will be doing something in the Kansas City, MO area for those who are
interested.  How do you think we should celebrate?

Cryptoparty
- -----------

`Cryptoparty`_ has sprung up as a grass roots movement to bring
cryptography to the people.  Topics covered range from Tor to GPG to
OTR.  However, one topic which I haven't noticed at any of the parties
was mention of Tahoe-LAFS.  This prevents a great opportunity for us to
introduce Tahoe-LAFS to the uninitiated.  I am willing to help cover
Tahoe at the Kansas City cryptoparty.  Anyone else with me?
