[liberationtech] Mobile Martus and (sort of) Not Recruiting

We'll be shortly going into beta test with our Mobile Martus Android app, allowing Martus users to do secure data collection on Android handsets and sync that data with their Martus accounts in the cloud. This is not full-on Martus on a phone, rather a minimalist interface to send text, photos, audio recordings and videos to an existing Martus server account for later use.
I especially want to want to acknowledge the Tor and Guardian teams for their help and code, which made this development much easier and better. Plus the human rights donors that support open source software for the movement, especially the MacArthur Foundation and the Open Technology Fund.
On a related matter: with the spin-off of the Human Rights Data Analysis Group last month (and Patrick Ball's renewed focus on being the world's leading human rights data scientist), Benetech is looking for a new leader for our human rights program. I covered the reasons why someone wouldn't want the role in this blog post: http://benetech.blogspot.com/2013/03/why-you-dont-want-this-job.html If you know someone who would be perfect, but probably wouldn't want this job, please let them know about it, and I'll try to talk them into it anyway.
Your help is appreciated: there are new opportunities to do much more with a new generation of Martus and especially better integrate our technical and extensive field work with the work of other developers (such as those on this list) who share our commitment to help the movement be safer and more effective in advocating for greater respect for human rights.
