So, a few days ago i opened a discussion on a facebook post from the party. it was related to data retention laws and the things people can do to protect themselves. I proposed that the party should construct, and provide tools/software/services to the general population to make it easy for them to setup privacy solutions. I have a number of ideas of how we could develop/package tools and i think it would also help to promote the party as doing something to help australians. wouldn’t it be great if we had millions of australians looking at the pirate party logo in their task bar every day, and going to the pools knowing that even before we have an elected candidate we are doing something to help everyday australians.
I would be willing to lend my own time to development (Although i don’t do graphic design) but would love to hear what others think about providing such things, if they would be keen to help, and if we would want to actually spend any money on it (because having a small VPS to facilitate some low cost server based components would be great.)
