     7We started with an [https://github.com/kantorkel/onion-presentation/raw/master/2018-08-31-ccchh-meetup.pdf introduction to Tor], which was very well  received. ([https://github.com/kantorkel/onion-presentation Source])

    119Some of the questions we discussed:
    12 - What's the difference between advertised bandwidth and bandwidth
    13 history in Metrics graphs [4]?
    14    Glossary: advertised bandwidth [5], bandwidth history [6]
    15 - Which relay types are most useful for new relays?
    16    Exits and Bridges are not as plentiful as Middle relays.
    17 - How do I run an exit relay/what is important?
    18    Better not run it at home.
    19    Make sure ISP is ok with it/check ASN for diversity.
    20    Be prepared to handle abuse tickets/set descriptive DNS record.
    21    Learn about police raids/reach out to a lawyer.
    22 - What kind of applications can be Onion Services?
    23    Anything that speaks TCP, i.e. web applications, SSH.
    24 - How does registration/login work on Onion Service webforums?
    25    Probably pseudonymous username/password.
    26 - What can go wrong when running an Onion Service?
    27    Many configuration mistakes possible/leaking identifying information.
    28 - Would it be helpful to educate the judges who sign search warrants
    29 about Tor, in addition to police officers?
    30    Possibly.

    32 We then talked about plans for a Hamburg-based Privacy/Tor association
    33 and whether people think it might be useful:
    34 - It would be good to have someone local to talk to and meet.
    35 - More Tor associations would be good for decentralization.
    36 - Some people would prefer to contribute funds, instead of running their
    37 own relays.
