  • GNU Hackers Meeting in Paris: “GNU Free Call – a healthnet of cars and cell phones” (Haakon Meland Eriksen)
    GNU Free Call is a new project to develop and deploy secured self-organized communication services worldwide for private use and for public administration. The focus of this talk is the continuation of emergency medical services even when existing infrastructure is no longer available or has been deliberately disabled using GNU Free Call to create a healthnet of cars and cell phones.

  • LibrePlanet2010 at Harvard: “Communication Privacy For Free Societies” (David Sugar)
    This presentation is on communication privacy and how we are creating wiretap-immune peer-to-peer communication services for direct public use in GNU Telephony.
    David Sugar spoke on his work on creating free (as in freedom) secure telephony software built around the ZRTP stack and GNU SIP Witch, for direct public use. Unfortunately the very beginning seems to have been missed. It seems to pick up right as he was making a point about the first amendment not being meant to protect “popular” speech, which, by definition, generally requires no special protections, but rather to protect unpopular speech.

      SIP is a new simple and powerful text protocol mainly created for VoIP. The presentations will discuss the purpose of this protocol, present a few possible applications that could use it.

    • “Setting up GNU Bayonne” (David Sugar)
      I will be introducing and demonstrating current work on making GNU Bayonne operate in conjunction with the openH323 stack to deliver application-driven interactive voice processing over H323 sessions.

  • First FLOS Caribbean Conference in Port-of-Spain (Trinidad and Tobago): “e-government services for the blind” (David Sugar)
    From 2000 to 2005 I had participated in an effort by the American Foundation for the Blind to enable e-government services by telephony enabling Daisy XML talking book documents. This particular project was originally started by me in the Republic of Macedonia. A pilot project was deployed by the U.S. Social Security administration. I believe this particular presentation on the project was delivered in Trinidad as part of the FLOSS/Caribbean conference.
