Hello Outriders!



This week on the podcast we've been talking about the unethical web and how to protect vulnerable groups in society.





First up, Andrew Gregson outlined the Unethical Social Web and why it is important to take a closer look at how people use the web for darker reasons.





Also on the show, how using mobile web can be good for the protection of immigrant sex workers in the UK. Alexandra Joensson is a media practitioner who is working with others so that people in the sex industry can better communicate in different languages on a secure network with X Msg.




Last but not least, Sameer Padania joined me for a discussion about how mobile video online is changing the field of human rights. A new report entitled, Cameras Everywhere, takes a closer look at the role of video in bearing witness in cases regarding human rights.


Exciting news for next week. I'm handing over the keys and leaving Outriders in the capable hands of one of our founders - Chris Vallance. I'm looking forward to what he has for us too!

In the mean time if there is a project you are working on or something online that you would like to know more about, then drop a line and let us know.

You can email me at Outriders at bbc dot co dot uk, give me a nudge on Twitter at @BBC_Outriders, or search for Outriders on Facebook page to find our page there.
