Dave Levin just shared this presentation on the SIGCOMM slack. I thought it might be interesting for this group: https://youtu.be/ksojSRFLbBM

> Dave Levin  7:58 PM
> @here In case anyone is interested in seeing a talk about censorship evasion, Kevin Bock from UMD will be presenting our work on Geneva, a genetic algorithm that automatically discovers how to circumvent nation-state censorship. Livestreaming starting in just a minute at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksojSRFLbBM
> This is part of the Internet Measurement Village run by the great folks at OONI. They’ve been extremely supportive in fostering a community of researchers and activists to investigate and combat censorship around the world. If you’re at all interested in getting into that space, joining the OONI slack is a great first step.
