Using IT To Tackle Down Corruption
In my home country, Indonesia, corruption is still a cancer that infected the whole country. And the cancer has been infected the polices, judges, attorneys, and even the parliament members, forming the so-called oligarchy of corruptors.
I've curious about what Shaffi Mather is doing: using websites as a "hall of shame" of corrupt officials. Or even the WikiLeaks model. Maybe the same thing can be implemented in Indonesia, but there are some things i've been wondered about:
1. how to assured that the information is correct, based on proof, so that the sites can't be used for blackmailing other people?
2. how to protect the whistleblower from harm and counter-attack from the corrupt officials?
3. how to protect the site from shut down?
I'm looking for your opinion and insights, peeps. I hope this small dea will be meaningful someday, and the corrupt officials will be tacke down someday.
