WAHCKon 2013: Hackers, the Internet and Campaigns for Social Justice

Apologies for the brevity of this post. Hopefully I'll come back and develop it further in the not-too-distant future, but for now I'm using it as a pointer to the presentation I'm going to give at Perth's first hacker con, WAHCKon 2013. Well, that, and some of the groups and links mentioned in the presentation.

Refugee Rights Watch site enters public beta

In conjunction with the Refugee Rights Network, we've released an early beta version of a reporting and aggregation site focused on incidents and abuses affecting refugees caught within Australia's immigration detention system. The system itself is based upon the Ushahidi Platform.

We're currently refining the incident categories and which details we should capture, but if you want to check it out, it is now live at http://watch.refugee-rights.net. And if you want to get involved and/or provide feedback, that'd be even better!

First public release of the GroupWiki documentation tool is now available

The first public release of the GroupWiki documentation tool is now available for download and installation here. This distribution is based on a system that has been used (and refined) over a couple of years by a local grass-roots political group, but should be useful to most self-organising collectives and smaller organisations.

Or if you'd rather check it out before downloading it, you can see a live (read-only) demo at http://demo.interarma.org/groupwiki
