|Feelings||Felt very good to talk through individuals existing methodologies, felt I learnt as much from them as I was able to transmt.|
|Feedbacks||People were very open about the fact that they did not think too much about surveillance but it was clear to them that things were happening. Some of the tools seemed to be more useful than others in the follow up.|
|Start||Focus on Text Secure and GPG/ autonomous mails, as they seem to be the tools with most continued usage.|
|Stop||Being afraid to take the "teaching" or "expert" role. It does seem to help in some occasions, although it has definitely got limits .|
|Keep||Keep researching autonomous servers, feminist online libraries and other feminist approaches to tech, such as "making your own sex toys" as these were issues that have been brought up as wanted workshops.|
