People Links

People Links is a series of monthly talks addressed to MF/PL members on political and technical issues relevant for them (open for other people as well, which might a good outreach tool).

Analía, a staff member of APC and also a MF/PL volunteer, will coordinate the initiative.

The initial proposal is to do these talks monthly, the first Thursday of each month at 6 PM East time.

A preliminary list of issues would be:

  • Violence against women and the internet, possible impacts on free speech, and measures that ISPs might take.
  • Surveillance online and what to do to counteract it
  • Open source and intellectual property (example: what happened to YesLab)
  • Race
  • Control panel
  • Tickets

We're aiming at one-hour talks, with the following structure

  • Eventual technical adjustments and waiting for late arrivals (5 minutes)
  • Brief intro about MF/PL (5 minutes)
  • Presenter's talk (15 minutes)
  • Q&A (20 minutes)
  • Wrap up (5 minutes)

An initial invitation will be sent through the membership list, and interested people would be added to a People LInks list.
