I think it's definitely worth finding out more about who's currently
holding cryptoparty.org - and perhaps even transfer it, if the current
"owner" agrees. We thought that the website went to Samthetechie but it
appears, he also doesn't admin the site from what we could find out. So
we are looking to go back to source ...
I also think it's a great idea to work on some more relevant material.
The cryptoparty handbook was a good start, but working on some material
to use for practical sessions, promotional stuff etc. is also helpful.
Cryptoparty Brussels had some great slides to work with, for example -
so being able to upload and share that sort of material as public domain
could help those who might otherwise feel not quite "up to the task".
We had a discussion on how to structure a cryptoparty "educational site"
for Frankfurt a while ago but haven't really followed up on it as we
kept adding related, but not crypto-specific content. So I'd be happy to
join any discussion or even preparation of materials that we might want
to share and use.
Lara, if there is anything I can contribute, let me know. Perhaps we can
add some of our base material from Cryptoparty Frankfurt ...

But I impute that he is actually quite a nice person, so he would not
hesitate to redirect the domain cryptoparty.org to anybody who would be
willing to host a mediawiki on her own server *hint* *hint*.

projects that this does not work so well because of parcel costs and
effort in maintenance. What works really well on the other hand, is a
checklist on how to compile such a suitcase (:
