C3TV - Collect It All: Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) for Everyone

C3TV - Collect It All: Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) for Everyone

Governments post reports and data about their operations. Journalists publish documents from whistleblowers. But there is a third type of open data that is often overlooked- the information people and companies post about themselves. People need jobs. Companies need to hire people. Secret prisons do not build themselves.

By making it feasible for anyone to collect public data online in bulk and exploring ways to effectively use this data for concrete objectives, we can build an independent, distributed system of accountability.

So in other words, a searchable database that mentions classified information that’s well… out there for everyone? It sure makes for some interesting stories!
