Even though development on Replicant is still moving forward at a pretty slow pace, we believe it is crucial to spread the word about the project in order to encourage more people to get involved but also to teach people about the underlying problems for freedom and privacy/security on mobile devices.
During the next two months, Replicant will take part in various free software conferences and events in France. A talk about Replicant, freedom and privacy/security will be given at each event, sometimes with a workshop or some form of public discussion, such as participation in a round table.
Starting next week-end, Replicant will be at the following events:
- Brest en Biens Communs, October 3, Brest: Internet aujourd’hui, défendre les libertés round table
- Brest en Biens Communs, October 17, Brest: Replicant, système d’exploitation libre pour smartphones talk and workshop
- Capitole du Libre, November 21-22, Toulouse: Libérer son mobile avec Replicant : politique, technique talk
- JM2L, November 28, Sophia Antipolis: Libérer son mobile avec Replicant : politique, technique talk
Those talks will be opened by Benjamin Bayart, iconic figure in the French free software community and long time activist for electronic liberties and net neutrality.
We hope to see as many of you as possible, to help spread the word about Replicant, freedom and privacy/security on mobile devices! As usual, each event will be an occasion to verify the Replicant release key and get some help installing the system on your device! Donations are also welcome, as they make it possible for me to attend such events at all.
See you soon!
November update: Due to the recent attacks in Paris, Capitole du Libre was canceled and Bazar du Libre is taking place in Toulouse on November 21-22. The talk about Replicant was rescheduled in Mix’art Myrys, room 2 at 3:00 pm.
