We're in the late prototype phase for Groundsource<>,
a mobile data collection and engagement platform -- designed for

Let me know if you're interested in helping us navigate these issues. I'd
be happy to demo the platform for anyone who's interested -- and I am also
beginning the search for a CTO/technical co-founder to lead on these and
other tech/strategic decisions.

sources control over the data that they share and their level of
