Community Team Exercise from Tor Dev Meeting in Berlin

Some key points that came out of the meeting that was done during roadmapping (the meeting lacked many of our excellent outreach people, though included other excellent outreach people):

• This is a brainstorm rather than a roadmap; it is not meant to be deliverables at this stage. The Community Team has not decided to do a roadmap but can discuss these ideas during our meetings and decide which of these things we might want to do. Also, we want to hear from other Tor outreach people who were unable to attend the meeting.

• We can support the crowdfunding campaign in November and December and should start planning now--at our next meeting.

• We should identify accurate teaching materials and organize a Teach the Teachers workshop--possibly for the next dev meeting at the Teachers Summit at the Circumvention Tech Festival in March (although the drafty time line below puts this much later).

• Advocates for Tor within businesses need some basic facts about Tor to do a better job in demystifying and evangelizing Tor.

So! Here are some ideas for the next year:

Plan crowd funding! How can we help?
