Dear friends at liberationtech:

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far to this discussion about SpeakSafe.

We genuinely appreciate your feedback and we're hopeful we can continue the conversation with you - together or individually - to improve this digital safety primer. While we can't guarantee we'll follow every recommendation offered, we pledge to read and listen to your comments, taking a "do no harm" approach as we adjust the manual.
We're open for input for two more weeks through November 30th. Please send comments and edits to speaksafe at<mailto:speaksafe at>, referring to the section and page number.

Here's what we're doing in response to comments posted or shared directly so far:

*         Adding an email address for feedback on the main page so people can send comments to speaksafe at<mailto:speaksafe at>.

*         Putting a time-stamp on the front page to reinforce the message (previously limited to the Introduction) that this is not a living document, but includes developments until November 30, 2012.

*         Updating the Creative Commons License to allow full use of material in the guide. We will be using "Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC 3.0)"

*         Working w/ developer of the display platform we used for SpeakSafe to ensure it renders equally well on PCs, mobiles and tablets. If you spot any reproducible display issues we'd appreciate hearing about the browser and OS you're using too.

*         Skype: Based on comments in this mailing list, we are pulling together text that draws attention to a number of attack vectors against the app that have been exploited: malware distribution through Skype; compromised versions of the application (e.g. TOM Skype in China); fake Skype "extensions," as seen in Syria. We welcome additional suggestions.
Again, we thank everyone your time and expertise on this -we believe  privacy and digital safety skills are an essential part of journalists' toolkits -  and your feedback is helping us do a better job of presenting this sharable resource.
