Very interesting.   Maybe we have room for collaboration?


Oximity <>  is a global news platform, entirely people-powered, challenging mainstream news media.


Currently we have news from roughly 3,000 individuals, 700 organizations and 24 networks <>  worldwide, growing rapidly.  A network consists of a group of Organizers, Editors, and Writers.  Example: .   And news content in more than 40 languages. 


Among other things, Oximity acts as a 'network of networks', bringing together diverse independent news networks from around the world onto one giant global platform, and cross-pollinating readers, writers and content across the various networks.


Future modules will include 

* Whistleblower module - secure, anonymous, verified

* Crowdfunding for investigative journalism


We're based in Palo Alto and Berlin.  We have the full engineering/design team and sales/marketing teams already in place.  Collaboration would give you immediate access to a worldwide user base.


Just thinking aloud...

Subject: [liberationtech] Looking for a Developer/Designer RA for full-year funding/hourly work at Stanford



We are looking for an awesome developer and/or designer for a project on crowdsourcing investigative journalism. In the project we are developing a mobile and/or web application for crowdsourcing microtasks from both voluntary and paid crowdworkers for an investigative news site that has hundreds of thousands monthly readers and contributors.


You can be a Stanford student (undergrad, Master’s, PhD student or a post-doc) in any level, as long as you have designer/developer skills. Previous front and back end UX development experience is appreciated, but you don’t need to have experience about crowdsourcing-related projects. There is flexibility in the starting date: You could start either over the summer, or in the fall 2015. The funding runs until the end of academic year 2015-2016. 


We are a team of three people, including postdoctoral and fellowship students, and we are looking to extend the team by a developer and/or designer, who would work with us in developing the applications. The work would be compensated by either covering your tuition + living (stipend) as a Research Assistant or paid as hourly work, depending on your preferences.


Depending on the arrangements, there might be another developer working on the project part-time.


In this job, you will get:


* Unique design and development experience,

* Co-authorship in research papers, if you want

Work with an all-star, fun, ambitious and experienced team

* Funding

* Being part of the awesome Brown Institute for Media Innovation community and resources

* Exposure in national and international press

* Networks in the world of media innovations and crowdsourcing applications

* Possibility to scale up internationally


Please respond fast, this is a unique opportunity and the time is limited! Shoot us an email and let’s meet asap. Let us know if you have questions. Please respond to Tanja at tanjaa at and to Michael morisy at
