So I never did respond to this. My bad! HOPE itself was a quite a mess (to say the least).
Freedom of the Press Foundation (aka myself) was tabling and SecureDrop had the largest mention, with the Haven application not too far behind. Here’s how the HOPE tabling went:
We seem to have a lot of positive reception to SecureDrop. We might have a couple news organizations interested in setting up SecureDrop and potentially requesting Freedom of the Press Foundation’s help. A few potential new contributors were roped by both me, @heartsucker, and Josh. People were quite impressed with our translation efforts thus far!
Some people were quite impressed with @redshiftzero’s talk and were primed for me to close the sale.
In addition, we saw an increasing number of people gain more interest in SecureDrop, Tor, and other tools, including one high school student. The indoctrination is happening!
We’ll see what happens, but overall I consider it a success. We should consider doing a pure SecureDrop table in other events with more members of the community.
