Hi and welcome to the first part of Covering your tracks online. I'm CAJ community manager Carl Meyer, your liveblogger for this session. We're talking with Tim Groves, independent journalist. Remember to use #CAJ15 and the session-specific hashtag is #CAJ15hack.
Journalists should learn PGP encryption, Tim argues. he's found that when he interacts with people doing so, the conversation is on a much better level.
FYI audience is still working out how to do Mailvelope. Encryption is complex! Pun intended.
Ok, we're back for Part 2. For those just joining us, I'm CAJ community manager Carl Meyer, your favourite liveblogger. We're talking with Tim Groves, independent journalist, about encryption and covering tracks online. You can use #CAJ15 and the session-specific hashtag #CAJ15hack. Also, if you're here, come say hi! I'm the guy hunched over the tiny laptop at the back.
