# Mobile App for ICE Checkpoints?

There was an app in the news a couple years back that let
users overlay on a map the cop speedtraps they drove by
so that everyone can see / use. It took a lot of heat but is
probably still in service. Don't know if it was/is opensource.
Same idea, crowdsourcing and distribution of useful realtime data.

So long such an app doesn't bloat impacting realtime performance,
designing it to generically handle all sorts of realtime threat /
support / help! classes that users could filter for based on
their needs. Crypto could perhaps allow various local groups
to use it in a somewhat more private mode relavant to them,
caveat infiltrators. Lots of technical issues to design...
location anonymity of users, etc.

Development could occur anywhere on the spectrum of
public (unix kernels) to more anon (early bitcoin and i2p).
But the code and binaries definitely need to be opensource
reproducible and should have some form of open participation
development model.
