Case Study: Sandstorm for journalists

By Jade Wang - 23 May 2016

Jason Hernandez is a journalist who often covers sensitive topics like mass surveillance for the North Star Post. And given the nature of his work, he and his colleagues are justifiably concerned about the information security, not just between journalists and sources, but also drafts and storage of source materials. So, when Jason was visiting the SF Bay Area, he dropped by Sandstorm meetup to talk about the Sandstorm server he set up so he and his colleagues so that they can still enjoy the benefits of web applications, like real-time collaboration, while keeping control over their data.
