Fictional demons aside, the Internet needs our help to make it stronger. However, it often takes the government a while to implement change.

At CDT, we want to write a set of security guidelines that everyone from technical decisionmakers to webmasters can use to make the Internet a more secure place, right now.

You can help us do this by showing support or offering feedback on our #newschallenge entry “Usable Security Guides for Strengthening the Internet.

Google announces Project Tango, a smartphone that can map the world around it Google has built a prototype Android smartphone that can learn and map the world around it. The device comes from a new initiative called Project Tango, and it’s ready to get the phone into developers’ hands to see what the technology is capable of. Google says that the phone will learn the dimension of rooms and spaces just by being moved around inside of them — walking around your bedroom, for example, might help the phone learn the shape of your home.
