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.
