This monday evening the Syme project will present their experimental social network that aims at bringing more privacy and security to online communication through end-to-end encryption. Syme’s mission is to provide an accessible, private and secure sharing environment that serves as an alternative to Facebook groups or email.

The Syme team will present at TA3M Montreal on the need for accessible and user-friendly encryption tools. They will explain their approach to filling this need, and discuss the strengths, limitations and challenges associated with such a project.

Speakers: Jonathan (@jonhershon), Louis (@louismullie), Chris (@chris_marois), from Syme (@symeapp)
