The OpenITP UX Sprint focused on user experiences. Thanks to Humanity United who funded my participation, I presented PI and had a few interesting discussions with some of the participants about security issues. We devised a few tactics that we shall need to put to the test once we advance with the development of PI. I also sketched out possible cooperation avenues with Benetech who disposes of secure server space where we could envisage to securely store PI‘s acquire data in the future, as well as developers working on the Guardian project and Tor.
As planned the RightsCon conference was a great opportunity to present PI. I had long and interesting meetings with Free Press Unlimited, Internews and Physicians for Human Rights, who showed genuine interest in PI. I am presently following up with all of them to discuss possible cooperation. I also had a long discussion with Access (the conference organizers) security expert who had raised security concerns prior to the conference, but who after presenting PI stated that we had an “intelligent” approach and that he would gladly have his team assess our technology from a security perspective in the future.
