Synchronizing mail, calendars and contacts

Chris Irwin lived a personal experiment to synchronize his mail, with the following goals:

  • Access mail from the commandline
  • Synchronize between hosts, with no information totally local
  • Use standards
  • Minimal annoyance day to day
  • Synchronize with Android

To accomplish this he uses a stew of utilities and libraries: mutt, notmuch, Khard, Khal, Todoman, iSync/MBsync, vdirsyncer, git, CalDav-sync, CardDav-sync, OpenTasks, Baikal and DavMail.

Emulating the Tor network

University of Waterloo graduate student Nik Unger will tell us about his research. He is creating a state-of-the-art emulation platform that aims to emulate the entire Tor network at full scale. Tor is an open-source tool that helps users to stay anonymous online. He will discuss some of the challenges involved, his approach to the problem, why he chose Linux as a platform for it, and specific features of the Linux kernel that enable his work. He will also share some of this project's implementation details.
