Visible Cities #6

App for Rioteers

9 Mar 2011

Visible Cities, the regular night on the networked city in De Verdieping, returns next week with a presentation by the people from Sukey. It is a set of applications designed to keep people protected and informed during protests. Sukey brings together in-house code, resources like Google Maps and open-source software like SwiftRiver.
