imageWe are happy to announce that on Tuesday, May 5 our project Handheld Human Rights was awarded the third place prize at the UC Berkeley Human Rights Center conference: The Soul of the New Machine.

We are honored to be chosen by the Human Rights Center’s panel of judges especially when they had such a strong and inspiring field of projects to pick from. Thank you to the Human Rights Center and the conference’s sponsors for making the Soul of the New Machine possible. Thanks also to all of the other featured projects and to everyone we met and connected with during the enriching conference.

And congratulations to Nathan Freitas, Kubatana , and BUG Labs for their winning projects: Guardian, Freedom Fone and BUG4Good. We are proud to share the winners podium with you all!
