NYC Resistor is offering a TAILS workshop on Sunday, September 10th, where attendees will learn how to keep a secret online identity in a USB drive. This pragmatic workshop is designed for journalists, activists, or anyone else interested in digital pseudonymity. Participants will learn how to set up a subpoena-ready “rogue” Twitter account, as well as general operational security practices, from our member David Huerta. Get your tickets here!

TAILS is an operating system that will let you keep a secret online identity in a USB drive. Aside from its worst-case-scenario-protection security design, TAILS routes all internet traffic through TOR, a global anonymity network, which allows anyone to use the internet without correlating what you do on the internet to your daytime identity.

We have a new laser class coming up on March 5th! This advanced class is geared towards people who use the laser often and/or want to understand how to get the most out of the machine. Laser Cutting II: Optimize Your Laser Cutting will cover a variety of topics – from re-sequencing your artwork files in order to reduce cut time, to when to use different focus levels for specific cutting tasks.

Please note that you must have taken a previous laser-cutting class at NYC Resistor to qualify for Laser Cutting II.
