1. (20:15) John A. Baumlin Jr. -- Digital Tools for Democracy (

End-to-End Encryption? Blockchain? Fediverse!? The protesters in Hong Kong aren't hosting their human rights meetings on Zoom, organizing on Facebook, or storing their files on Google!

Hear from a real protester and learn about some of the newest technologies to take control of your data and transmit it safely!

A rerun of a classic talk from the early days of Nerd Nite. We still have no idea how that levitating table works.

Do you need to memorize your password or change it regularly? What is the past and future of passwords? How do companies and governments use risk and probability analysis to strengthen authentication? Nerd Nite's resident cybersecurity expert has the answers!
