Go off the record campaign

Pirate Praveen Public Seen by 52

Let's build a campaign around otr and document otr support for every platform (all mobile and desktop platforms). Let's crowd fund to develop apps for platforms without otr since the network effect will force us to skip otr even if our friends can't have it.

Sugeesh has designed first poster for the campaign https://poddery.com/posts/1297238 hoping more people coming up with sharp captions and good designs.

We'll work on the campaign website this Sunday at Mumbai Debain Day event https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDay/2014/India/Mumbai

If you are in Mumbai or Pune or nearby, join us. Also tell any of your friends to join us.

Thanks to Ashik (http://aashiks.in/) we have registered a domain otr.works. We can have a tagline like this,

"You can have private communications, Off The Record Works"

I have requested hosting space from autistici.org, hoping they would accept the request. If not we'll have to find another hosting provider.

@praveenarimbrathod My company is ready to provide hosting space in our servers running ISPConfig panel.


Pirate Praveen Sat 23 Aug 2014

Thanks @manukrishnantv . Please talk to Ashik and get DNS updated to your server. We'll use a git repo to manage the content. Use https://gitlab.com/piratemovin/otrworks as the initial content. Everyone feel free to send pull requests. If you know someone with good design skills, we need some good design.

Created the hosting account and DNS works fine now.

Tried cloning thje repo, but gets "fatal: could not create work tree dir 'otrworks'.: Permission denied" error.
