The purpose of this project is to design an application targeted towards activists and researchers, for raising awareness of a lack of global Internet access and freedom. This mobile app will display country and global statistics for different aspects relevant to Internet freedom (such as broadband connections, percentage of users online, etc.) and allow individuals the ability to easily access this data in a form similar to a weather app.
Public users have the following features on the app, broken down as :
Geolocation to view current country’s stats
Search for metrics by country
Search for individual metric views
View global statistics
View other countries’ stats
View stats by world regions
The Berkman Klein Center's mission is to explore and understand cyberspace; to study its development, dynamics, norms, and standards; and to assess the need or lack thereof for laws and sanctions. They are a research center, premised on the observation that what they seek to learn is not already recorded. Their method is to build out into cyberspace, record data as we go, self-study, and share. Their mode is entrepreneurial nonprofit.
