Dear all,
      I hope that I may be able to tempt some of you to join us for this 
dayschool in January. Full details follow. The themes: digital tools for 
campaigning, net security and online privacy, FLOSS etc. The format is 
based on a very well received event which I helped to organise in 2015. 
The audience: Largely those with little tech' expertise and some 
apprehension about using online tools. There will also be a forum for 
more experienced techies' to share ideas.

Below, is the blurb about the event. So far, there are only three 
workshops mentioned. So there is still plenty of room in the programme. 
It would be great to hear your ideas about the most important topics 
with which we should fill the other slots. If you would like to offer a 
workshop please make a proposal ASAP. There will likely be something on 
PGP /TOR /TAILS and a hands on session with the opportunity to try 
various live GNU/Linux distros.
I shall hope to see you there,
