"In a volume no greater than a deck of cards, the general purpose computer now fits in our pockets. Just about all the features we expected, from desktop or notebook computers, now come in smart phones.

Most people know that these devices have cameras, WiFi, microphones, and accelerometers. Some even use these devices as hot-spots to allow other devices to access the Internet via the smartphone's wireless data service.

Fewer of us understand what can be done with these technologies when combined in these small packages.

So how can we turn these devices into defenders of human rights and democracy?

We need a "Citizen Defence Through Truth App.""


Wouldn't an App like this be more useful than "The Global Square"?

Thanks for carrying my blog post. I see a lot of potential for it. I should mention, I'm not interested in profiting from it. I would love to see it grow into a free and open-source life saver.

For the time being, anyone with ideas or comments, please post them on my blog at the address above. I hope this project might need a much better collaborative development service soon!

Finally, if you know white hat hackers, open source developers, or perhaps even people with skills in advanced cryptography, please, please, pass on my blog address!
