Topics to be explored:

- The “Karma Server”, intended for rating mailing lists posts (and/ or other content), with the goal to share the ratings with friends, within one or more communities, and to enable search within posts. Mailing lists are used for a very long time in this way in many different setups, from technical standardisation bodies (IETF, W3C), Internet governace (Regional Internet Registries, ICANN), technical communities (NOGs, e.g. NANOG, UKNOF, DENOG...), to community projects such as hackerspaces. Enabling tagging of mailing lists posts would introduce an improvement in the direction of more modern social media, such as web-forums (i.e. Slashdot, Reddit) or other platforms where users can rate the content (i.e. Amazon, Facebook discussion groups). Vesna (TechInc) is with us to extend on this topichttp://wiki.techinc.nl/index.php/Karma_server - Extend focus on real-time, non-textual, encrypted communications: get to see what's cooking with the future of telephony and video- conferencing using the ZRTP protocol. Will be present Spideralex and Eleanor Saitta to envision further interoperability and explore the next level of social networking freedom.
