The Crypto-Think event aims to tackle some of the challenges facing developers and advocates today by providing a forum to share solutions, predictions and ideas about making a more private Internet."

Participants are invited to bring a slide deck (10 to 20 minutes plus discussion) on web privacy pitfalls, triumphs and nightmares. Lunch will be served, and the event will be followed by a party from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
