Hi @/all ! I am a student working on a research project to help alert folks of public emergencies. One of the aspects of our project is to develop a platform add-on similar to SwiftRiver for Ushahidi ... I am wondering if there's anyone who worked on the project that I can speak to about the reasons behind its discontinuation, the realistic achievement of our development, and what sorts of obstacles were presented! I'd love to connect! Thank you!!

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @jessicaquynh I don't think any of the original SwiftRiver team are still around. I can know a bit of the background and challenges though if thats helpful.

Can you tell me a bit more about your project? What university are you at? Whats timeline are you working on?
We have some other research work in progress integrating classifiers to categorize posts... but still in prototype phases. There's also some code from Swift that could theoretically be integrated with Ushahidi... rather than stand alone too.
