Workshop: Knapsack for Hope: Satellite Filecasting Around Censorship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Come experience the Knapsack for Hope Project led by Net Freedom Pioneers.  We'll lead an interactive demo of the satellite filecasting technology used in places like Iran to deliver daily data dumps to communities facing digital censorship. Though not using decentralized web technology today, Net Freedom Pioneers is looking for great ways to incorporate such tools where it can help disseminate censored material within countries like Iran.

Come learn about on-the-ground needs and brainstorm with Net Freedom Pioneers on using your technologies to increase access to knowledge around the world.
