Monero Meetup: Paris, France - May 21th, 2015

Thursday 21st of May 2015 in the magnificent Mozilla offices, located at 16 bis rue Montmartre, 19h30 to 22h (approx.).

Mozilla and Monero share several goals; Mozilla is about taking back the web, Monero is about taking back the finance.

To summarize:

  • 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.

Karl Chappé approached me after he read my post on darkcoin, anoncoin, shadowcash, monero. He was impressed by the quality of the post. He expected to have a privacy meeting like in SF

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!

Great thing! Will there be a (real-time?) video feed?
