Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information

BY PIETER FRANKEN
IN TOKYO

"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation."


From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Safecast Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, March 11, 2016.

A free press is the gatekeeper for that transparency and the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) is one of the tools to achieve transparency. The Netherlands prides itself for being an open, transparent society. Unjustly so, according to investigative Sjors van Beek, who has met many locked doors during his career spanning over 25 years.
