this may be interesting for some of the readers of this list:

Monday and Wednesday next week (15th, 17th) my OpenPGP course at Berlin Linux 
User Group

will be visited by three or four German TV crews plus one Ukrainian. So you at 
least don't have to be (too) afraid that technical nonsense gets 
broadcasted... ;-)

The first report will be on air in the ARD Nachtmagazin on Monday, part of the 
tagesthemen probably the next day. I do not know yet when N24 and ZDF are 
going to broadcast this. But I will announce that when I know it here:

The rather strange reason for that is that they actually wanted to shoot at 
Cryptoparties but their paranoid organisers (slightly misunderstanding their 
own aim of making the general public familiar with crypto) didn't allow that.

We jump at the chance and change my "once per month with small group" OpenPGP-
only event to a complete Cryptoparty offer with one real event per week (with 
rotating subjects, only one per event).

Furthermore we (or at least me for OpenPGP) will offer to teach future 
instructors for other events and offer them to gain (supervised) experience 
with our course before they give one on their own. This should help getting 
more people willing (and qualified) to do that.

Obviously I am not really neutral in this assessment but I consider OpenPGP 
the lead technology for making the public familiar with all the Cryptoparty 
stuff (crypto on the one hand, anonymization on the other).

I will use the remaining time to improve my site
But anyone who understands German is invited to have a look at it and make 
suggestions for improvements befor it gets hit by the big wave next week...

Heading at ten million OpenPGP users in Germany in ten years...
