SELF 2020: Bootstrapping

– We’ve reorganized the website
– The mailing list has been brought in house
– We’re in the process of moving the entire back catalog to Archive.org (about 80% complete). Note that some content will only be available on Archive.org, particularly from the previous few years. This is because some of our sponsor ads had licensed audio content they paid for to use in their ad. Despite disputing the automated take downs, YouTube sided with the copyright take down request. As a result we’ll make sure going forward all content is dual released onto Archive.org and torrent if necessary.
– Our theme for 2020 is a take off on 007: Chmod 777: License To Be Killed
– Our sponsor prospectus is available and propaganda be made available shortly.
– Our call for speakers remains open until 11:59 PM ET March 14th. Get your talk submissions in now!
