Hi all,

this email just to notice that at OHM2013 Hacker's Camp there will be several talks on Whistleblowing.
It's very interesting to note how Whistleblowing has become an hot-topic 
for hackers and digital hacktivism! :-)

We may need to organize a "meeting" other than those lectures to discuss 
among all various players and people interested on the topic.
Program (getting updated) with a 
summary below:

Hermes Center: "Digital Whistleblowing with GlobaLeaks"

We'll introduce Digital Whistleblowing, how it's effectively used and 
adapted to different context: Investigative Journalism, Activism, 
Corporations and Governments. The new GlobaLeaks 0.2 software will be 
presented with a show case of design, security principle and tips on how 
to use it or hack it.

Volker: ADLeaks: "A Secure Submission System for Online Whistleblowing 

This talk covers the design and current state of implementation of a 
submission system for online whistleblowing platforms that is meant to 
provide anonymity against end-to-end traffic analysis.

Annie Machon: "The three wars (terrorism, drugs, internet)"

Based on her own experiences as an Intelligence Officer for MI5 (the UK 
domestic security service) and a whistleblower Annie Machon will talk 
about the relationships between the wars on 'terror', drugs and the 

Sander Venema: "Howto Build a Whistleblower's Website: Maintaining Your 
Users' Privacy vs. Getting the Message Out"

This talk is about the possible conflict between getting your message 
out there, and trying to maintain your site visitor's privacy. This talk 
will highlight some of the issues that need to be taken into 
consideration when building websites for whistleblowers with high 
security & privacy needs.

Dr Suelette Dreyfus: "Whistleblowing in the Digital Age -- What the 
public thinks"

How do different cultures perceive whistleblowing? This talk compares 
citizens' attitudes toward whistleblowing across several different 
countries. It will also reveal early results on public attitudes to 
using social media to blow the whistle, from the World Online 
Whistleblowing Survey. Finally it reviews some of the advances, proposed 
or actual, for whistleblowing laws in different countries.
