Our synchronous medium of communication is IRC meetings that happen every Monday at 1600 UTC in #tor-meeting on OFTC. If you've never been on IRC before, here are some instructions to get started. These instructions are for a Mozilla IRC server, so instead of, you'll use OFTC. The OFTC server addresses are: (alternative ports: 6668-6670, 7000) or for SSL (alternative port: 9999) (SSL is recommended).

Once you get connected and create a nickname, you can join the channel #tor-project. More info on getting started on IRC. and here's some info on IRC conventions and etiquette.

Our asynchronous medium of communication is the mailing list. This list is public in the sense that anyone can subscribe, send emails and read archives. Feel free to subscribe and just listen if you want, and feel free to post if you want to say something that you think is on topic.


Here's what we're working on right now:



Regular events for TPO to have a presence at (table, brochures, speakers). Please use NYC entry for table template.
