CryptoParty Design Patterns in Howto section in chapter_00 ?

Yeah I agree that this is the best place. Was having a debate with Pettter
on IRC about where or not the whole section should be in the book!
From reading the entire page on the handbook (
https://cryptoparty.org/wiki/CryptoPartyHandbook) it appears that the book
should be a crypto manual with a low barrier of entry for all in the first
place but then also a resource dedicated for people attending cryptoparties
second (So I see a well written howto section with lots of cultural
references as essential to make it an effective outreach tool).

I agree that there should be some of this stuff in there. However, I am not convinced that it should involve "lots" of cultural references. The focus of the book should imo be usable and practical cryptographic tools, not politics, ideology or culture.
