morning all - there’s a really cool festival in March 2017 @ Valencia, Spain called the IFF: Internet Freedom Festival.

previous 2016 schedule https://internetfreedomfestival.org/IFF_Schedule.html

It’s free to attend and you can also upload talks, Q&A, and workshop proposals if you want to lead a session; The festival is actually made up of community sourced info sessions so there is minimal top-down programming of the events by the organisers…

@ManfredKarrer has been suggested to attend with Bitsquare so fingers crossed he can make it.

I went this year in Feb, 2016 it was great, you can see the sort of sessions that there’ll be in the link above.

Also Valencia is a comparatively affordable place to visit… cheap hotels etc… depending on where you’re travelling from…

C U there, hasta la vista
