Haven: Keep Watch

Haven: Keep Watch
https://guardianproject.github.io/haven/

Haven is for people who need a way to protect their personal spaces and possessions without compromising their own privacy. It is an Android application that leverages on-device sensors to provide monitoring and protection of physical spaces. Haven turns any Android phone into a motion, sound, vibration and light detector, watching for unexpected guests and unwanted intruders. They designed Haven for investigative journalists, human rights defenders, and people at risk of forced disappearance to create a new kind of herd immunity. By combining the array of sensors found in any smartphone, with the world’s most secure communications technologies, like Signal and Tor, Haven prevents the worst kind of people from silencing citizens without getting caught in the act.

The Journal of Brief Ideas

December 22, 2017

The Journal of Brief Ideas
http://beta.briefideas.org/

The Journal of Brief Ideas is a research journal, composed entirely of ‘brief ideas’. The goal here is to provide a place for short ideas to be described – in 200 words or less – for these ideas to be archived (courtesy of Zenodo), searchable and citable. They think that that there is an inherent inefficiency in scientific publishing due to the quantum (or minimum publishable amount) of research being too large. It can takes many years to do enough research for a publication in a top-tier journal. Meanwhile, all that intellectual capital is tied up solely in the heads of the researchers rather than circulating where it could be doing some good. Also, many research ideas and results are not publishable because they are small, negative, partial, or just don’t fit the criteria of other journals. But many of them can be expressed briefly and could aid other researchers. This will be added to Knowledge Discovery Subject Tracer™.

Cureus – Medical Publishing Made Smarter, Affordable and Hassle-Free

Cureus – Medical Publishing Made Smarter, Affordable and Hassle-Free
https://www.cureus.com/

Cureus is the medical journal for a new generation of doctors and patients. Based in San Francisco, California, Cureus leverages the power of an online, crowd-sourced community platform to promote medical research with tools to better serve and highlight physicians and researchers around the world. The result? Better research, faster publication and easier access for everyone. Publishing your work has never been easier – it’s 100% free and you retain the copyright. What’s more, the Cureus platform is designed to provide a place for physicians to build a digital CV anchored with their posters and articles. Today, generating an audience for your article depends almost entirely on a journal’s circulation, limiting exposure to only a few thousand physicians in your field. Medicine is increasingly cross-disciplinary, as physicians read thought-provoking articles from specialties outside their own. Meanwhile, patients have virtually no access to this important content. Cureus provides everyone with access to thought-leading content. No paywalls. No red tape. The Cureus Journal of Medical Science is a fully open access journal, which means that all articles are available on the internet to all users immediately upon publication. Cureus publishes all accepted articles under a CC-BY license. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Cryptomator

Cryptomator
http://www.cryptomator.org

Cloud storage can be a tempting offsite backup approach, but without some sort of encryption one runs the risk of accidentally publishing all the files they’ve backed up to the world. Cryptomator provides such an encryption layer. It provides a virtual hard drive that users can treat like a USB stick. But under the covers, Cryptomator transparently uses industry standard AES encryption to encode your files before storing them on a cloud provider. The encryption key used is generated from a user-specified password using the standard scrypt algorithm; there is no additional key or account management beyond that. Cryptomator is licensed under the GPLv3, with full source code available on github. Desktop versions of Cryptomator are available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Mobile versions are available for iOS and Android. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
