Hardware, Embedded Systems No matter where you look these days, there's a profound sense here in the west that the people no longer having any tangible control over what our governments do. Sure, we are allowed to vote every once in a while, but effectively, most of our countries are governed by backroom deals and corporate interests. If matters really do get out of hand, how do we fight this? Well, with technology of course!

A government official wanting to expose unlawful practices within an administration.


This already happened in the UK, it was known as the "expenses scandal". It did not need an Android application for a civil servant to leak the information and probably either Outlook or a photocopier.

What is more important is that people do what is ethically correct rather than silly artworks and applications that don't solve the root of the problem.

Most education systems teach people to pass exams and not think for themselves ... this makes obedient worker bees and not people that wish to ask questions.

You need to change Education if you want people to think critically.
