This simple piece, which was created overnight in response to a specific event, is the software equivalent of a protest song, immediately resonating with users and journalists who spread news about the app worldwide in a three week period in October 2011. The video linked above is a montage of news coverage, a revealing of the information industry's conflicting urges to package, promote and mock a story percieved to have legs. As of April 2012, the app has been downloaded over 22,000 times, and translated into 14 languages.
