Good job David! I am sure it will be a fruitful discussion
Monero Meetup: Paris, France - May 21th, 2015
Mozilla and Monero share several goals; Mozilla is about taking back the web, Monero is about taking back the finance.
- Conference will be held in English. Questions can be in French.
- Format is round-table meeting. I envision the following participants: Riccardo Spagni (Monero team, focus on the "how"), David Latapie (Monero team, focus on the "why"), Karl Chappé (co-organisator, celebrity in the French cryptocurrency and libre software scene), André Reinald (Mozilla and peerstorage).
- The main topic will be at first privacy in technology in general and particularly in cryptocurrencies - the present situation in France (increasing control after the Charlie Hebdo shooting) will make such an event particularly on-topic. The meetup won't be only about Monero, although since Monero is the present leader in actual cryptocurrencies privacy, the meeting will be biased toward it.
- Since our sponsor, André Reinald from Mozilla, is a strong proponent of the blockchain-less technology that is behind MaidSafe and particularly peerstorage.org, a later consideration will be about how peerstorage.org and Monero could help each other.
Personally, I'd like web-related projected technologies like MoneroDNS and a future "Monero plugin in Firefox" (like freespeechme's Namecoin plugin) to be considered, but we'll see.
Afterward, we will probably move either to Sof's Bar, a longtime Bitcoin hideout, or a nearby bar.
Excellent job! I would like to know who approached who and where this idea came from.
I approached Tristan Nitot, which I knew for 12 years (Openweb powa!) who in turn referred me André Reinald. I had a one hour talk with André and voilà!
