  • Keynote - Developing Mobile Tools for Citizens Journalists

    by Chris Haseman

    As the Green revolution and the Arab spring have shown, technology is now an essential tool in organizing, documenting, and cementing peaceful resistance and civil disobedience. For now, the organizers are technologically ahead of the security forces they are demonstrating against. This imbalance, sadly, cannot last without our help. In this talk, I'll cover some of the technical tools needed to help dissidents document abuses. First, we must allow citizens to cover events anonymously, should they wish to. Second, we need to allow them access to their images and video even if the device on which they were taken is confiscated. Last, we need to develop software to help media escape internet blackouts and aggressive filtering.
