I am definitely interested in the project; this sounds like a
wonderful idea. It's a bit of a broad topic, so it might be best to
determine who the target audience is first. Beginners need an
easy-to-understand, but solid, overview of the issues in plain English
along with basic guidance to protect their privacy. Advanced users
are probably more interested in encrypted calling or Orbot etc.
Business-owners probably run the gamut here.
Second question is which platform? There might be the option of
having it web-based with a wrapper. iOS would probably be a good
choice for newbies, with Android or Blackberry if targeting more
advanced or business users.
What are your thoughts?
Be the change you want to see in the world.
