I have been away from the forum for a while because of demands from other projects and campaigns - most significantly this year has been getting actively involved with the Australian branch of Extinction Rebellion - set up after the UK group led the charge:
I think SAFE is one of the components necessary to help save the planet and I have a few projects that are hanging out for it to go live. However I have a technical question about whether SAFE might also be useful for another idea (as part of the bigger picture) that I have:
I want a mechanism whereby a key XR organiser can announce a “spontaneous” Civil Disobedience action to some sort of SAFE app, that will allow the direct SMS of thousands of people to let them know about the immediate action so that they can also participate in it if they are able to. I know commercial organisations already exist that allow for mass SMS distribution so that part of it does not seem difficult - what I am concerned about is keeping the DB of phone numbers secure from surveillance organisations that should not have access to that information.
I am presuming that the storage of such data in the SAFE system is just as secure as any other data and that security organisations would be forced to make use of the $5 wrench approach to get access?
Anyone here interested in helping with such an app? Comments on the development?
