None of this is possible if you only use Facebook and Twitter and Google plus. This has been literally coded on the ground and every day we changed the code to adjust to the need of that day and then used it for the next day. During the occupy this entire system got rewritten a number of times. This prototype was first done in March that year (2013) for the anti-nuclear energy plant protest. We worked with the cable electricity radio g0v to provide the protesters a high-speed Internet link because the year before there were a lot of people - almost a quarter million. So we expected a lot of views for the media, for the Internet and so on. Fortunately on that day there was a large typhoon in Taiwan and only 1/10th or less turns up because it was just raining cats and dogs. So nobody used the internet.
