How can we appeal to a large audience? How can we make the technologies developed grandparent compatible? How do we make the exchange of cryptographic keys and shared secrets a natural everyday transaction? Does every piece of software have to be "social" to be usable?

Featuring:

  • Aleclm –– A friendship handshake evolving the Socialist Millionaire
  • LynX –– Usability horror lessons to learn from e-mail, PGP, RetroShare and more
  • Jan C. Borchardt –– unhosted.org

We'll make ourselves a GNU Internet, and we'll teach our classmates, party peeps and parents to use it. How? Well, by providing it with the best Usability ever seen. We'll make it so hot, they'll WANT to use it by themselves!
