6:30 - 7:00 Google Fiber in Gainesville | David Nessl

Google is planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. They will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections.

Google has put out a "request for information" to help them identify communities that would be interested in participating in this "experimental fiber network". David Nessl is working on a response to Google from Gainesville, FL. Here is your opportunity to join the discussion.

More information about Google's experiment is here:

7:00 - 7:30 What Is GPG Good For Anyway? | Edward Allcut

GnuPG is the GNU project's complete and free implementation of the OpenPGP standard as defined by RFC4880 . GnuPG allows for encrypting and signing data and communications. It also features a versatile key management system and access modules for all kinds of public key directories.

7:30 - 8:00 GPG keysigning

There are 4 steps required to participate:

1. Generate a GPG key-pair if you do not already have one. Read this page for instructions on how to do this:
http://www.cryptnet.net/fdp/crypto/keysigning_party/en/keysigning_party.html#keypair_generation

2. Send your GPG public key to the key server at pgp.mit.edu. This is to facilitate everyone signing the key at the conclusion of the party.
For information on how to do this, look at this section of the former
page: http://www.cryptnet.net/fdp/crypto/keysigning_party/en/keysigning_party.html#keyserver

3. Email your key ID, key type, HEX fingerprint, and key size to clinton ~at~ collins-family ~dot~ org with the subject line of "GPG". This information is available via the "gpg --fingerprint " command.
