interarma.org is a nascent technology collective that is focused on sharing technical knowledge and tools with activist, advocacy and NGO communities, both online and through face-to-face workshops.
This project originally came about as a way to generalise and share some of the technical work done by members of an activist group in Perth, Western Australia. However, as alluded to by its name, interarma.org also hopes to support other groups by providing them with the knowledge and tools to better document the transgressions and omissions of governments, corporations and lobbyists.
We are still very much in our early days, but if you're interested in getting involved — either as an end-user by providing feedback on our systems or as someone from a technical background who'd like to help set up an technology collective — we'd love to hear from you.
If you're part of an activist, advocacy or NGO group and have some specific technical questions, we'd love to hear from you too. (Please note, however, that we don't develop blog or general websites, as there are plenty of groups who do — both commercial and not-for-profit.)
