We’ve received some new propaganda from an anonymous benefactor, and have built a new image gallery on the media page to accommodate it. Woohoo!
At the same time we updated the website code on GitHub, which was missing the last update or two.
We would love more artwork and propaganda from all of you! If you have anything you’d like to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us whether you would prefer to remain anonymous.
Today we’ve released an update for Android and iOS, fixing several longstanding bugs and adding translations for two new languages. Chief among these bugs, the Android client will no longer poll for location data while in the background (saving considerable battery life), and the iOS client no longer throws away all camera data when a network connection is interrupted. The update also includes an assortment of UI improvements and minor bug fixes.
It may take some time for the update to propagate through the App, Play, and F-Droid stores, but it should be available to everyone in the next day or two.
An update on the map growth:
We’re thrilled with the progress everyone is making, and hope to contribute more regular updates to the software soon. We believe Where are the Eyes is more important now than ever, and our highest software priority remains integrating with OpenStreetMap to unify with other surveillance activism groups.
Hello to all our Spanish and Japanese-speaking users!
Development of Where are the Eyes has slowed recently for a number of reasons, including releasing our second Daylighting Society project. The community, however, is as active as ever.
The map has grown to a tremendous 2331 cameras, which is an incredible feat for our roughly hundred users.
In the coming weeks we plan on more closely integrating Where are the Eyes and OpenStreetMap, sharing our data to support other surveillance maps. With this out of the way we can join forces and promote our projects simultanously, usurping the new world order!
