[liberationtech] beta - TERC - iphone blur/secure-cam

Congratulations on the application; clearly there is a need for a
competitive field of such applications, however, I am a bit concerned about
the lack of documentation. The estimated 26 days until the launch of Secure
Journalist is a bit of a long wait. In the interim, is there some material
you could share with libtech about the specifications? For example, I
presume "a secure FTP protocol" is SFTP, but you never know what some
people try ...

Also, is just me or does not even load using Tor?

Lastly, needs more hipster filters.
