We're looking to make SYN Shop more awesome, so we've decided that Tuesday would be the perfect night to host a community project night.  It's an open night where we can work on projects to improve SYN Shop.  This is your night to make your local hackerspace even better.

A Crypto Party is a gathering to learn and discuss computer Cryptographic tools, privacy, first amendment rights, and responsible legal methods of using these tools. This is an "Explain it like I'm 5 years old" (ELI5) level course.

The motivation is to empower regular people to protect their private data in an era of widespread surveillance. If you want to go further than just info, bring a functional laptop.

You may have noticed that SYN Shop looks a little clustered these days.  Long forgotten materials from members unfinished projects are taking up space.  Items we should probably just get rid of already need to be gotten rid of.  And an excess of some other items could probably go to better homes.

This is where you help out!

Starting at 12pm, or earlier if you are one of those "morning" people I heard stories of, we'll start the purge.
