What is WiseDame?
WiseDame is an iPhone application that takes your current safety practices - like texting someone the time you expect to be home or leaving a note about your plans for the day - and makes them better, faster, and easier.
Sometimes people want to share safety information and don't. Sometimes we forget. Sometimes we are shy or don't want to be a bother. Sometimes the sharing of information just takes too much time and effort. Sometimes we fear others' judgement, actively or subconsciously. WiseDame aims to lower these barriers and make personal security as effortless as it can be.
WiseDame aims to make the sharing of personal safety information consistent and thorough. It aims to do this by devising a digital method of sharing that data that is easy and respectful of boundaries.
Help spread the word. Reflect on your personal practices and share them with me.
