Cell 411 Presentation: Emergency Response without the State

The app Cell 411 – available now, for free, on Android and iOS – is powerful. It allows you to stream content live (both to an offsite server and to the devices of your friends who also have the app) and to send and respond to emergency alerts (both to people you care about and if you choose to go on Patrol Mode, to complete strangers in your area). On February 19, 2016 Cell 411 developer Virgil Vaduva gave a presentation entitled “Cell 411: Emergency Response without the State” at Liberty Forum (the annual event hosted by the Free State Project which this year was held in Manchester, NH). In the hour-long discussion, Virgil shares a bit about his background, motivation, gives an overview of current and prospective functionality, and solicits input from those present. Enjoy.

EDITOR’S NOTE: You can join the Public CopBlock Cell via Cell 411 by searching “CopBlock” in public Cells within the app. The input must be exact with capital C and B. Join this Cell if you’d like assistance from those of us who contribute here at CopBlock.org. Below is the video Brett Sanders recorded with Cell 411 that allowed myself the ability to publish it quickly. This made it easy for those who viewed the video to support a call flood for Brett which lead to the police releasing him instead of holding him until he could see a judge.
