Open Source and Crowd Sourced Ways to Find Missing People.

(Edited)


Trace Labs has a new way to enlist the help of experts in the mission of locating missing people using crowd sourcing and open sourced information.

The problem is that Law Enforcement is too busy looking for easy money like cracking down on prohibition and infractions than it is in actual police work like finding missing people. We could get into all the reasons that is, but I will stick to the subject at hand for now.

The reality is that it really does take a lot of skill, human resources and commitment to a case to hopefully find some trace of evidence. This is where a new paradigm of investigative techniques is being explored.

Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)

The use of the words Open Source in the context of Open Source Intellegnece is a little different than the meaning commonly used around here. Open Source Intelligence is simply the use of information which is "openly" available to the general public, particularly for use in security and forensics.

Once again, this gamification in the arena of crowd sourcing and open information should be another great opportunity for platforms like the Hive Blockchain. If we could devise a way to build information which is stored on a blockchain (keeping records of all transactions), experts could use this information for forensics and openly solve all sorts of cases.

Blockchains offer a transparent transaction that could be very useful in maintaining a chain of evidence and sources. The data could be analyzed independently and verified cooperatively. This offers us an entirely new paradigm, which admittedly would take some time to develop proper use standards. Over time, and through continued use and evaluation, we could develop a broad network of very effective analysts and investigators that could relentlessly and accurately find enough useful information to solve the unsolvable.

A GREAT DEAL of Police work should be Open Sourced

Chain of evidence and Info that shouldn't be blocked from the public can all be maintained outside the control of Police and State officials... In theory.

This is a topic I'm struggling to understand right now. There are times when evidence needs to be secret as a strategy to get truth. Verification of a story is often done using secret information. So, who gets to control that information?

Open source brings it's own problems... OR ... It's actually revealing the problems that secrecy has caused all along. I think it's absurd that some folks think Secrets can be kept in the first place, and that it's a good thing. Privacy is an entirely more complicated step... but we will keep evolving!

I find the whole crowdsourcing thing absolutely inspiring. In some ways I long for a world where we are more disconnected (more localism, more community in real spaces) but then when you think about what tech does bring, it blows my mind. i know there's many cases where the internet has found clues for missing people by looking at photos etc before the police do!

I listen to podcast all day while I work and the latest trend for me is true crime and justice stuff.

Blowing my mind is the way I would put it concerning the discussions brought up by seeing what these people have/ can accomplish compared to the traditional way it has been...

It's time to change the paradigm and look for real solutions that don't include a bumbling monopolistic bureaucracy asked to do the most important work in humanity.

We need a new way, and apparently we are already shifting that way. I am thankful to good people using technology the right way. Sure, mistakes and growing pains are happening but, so be it. Let's grow!

If they continue and embrace open source and blockchain for funding, transparency, communication and accountability, I think we will be on to something. #Hive might be the platform for a lot of it.

Nice! This is actually interesting. I had never considered this application, will be joining you on discord.

Awesome. Super glad to have you and I look forward to continuing to look for more ways people are using open, decentralized tech and philosophy.
