Many Americans are outraged over the privacy-invading programs run by US intelligence agencies. Such programs have collected thousands of communications from innocent, unknowing Americans.

Now, one group has decided to get payback on President Obama, who previously promised to run the “most transparent administration” in history.

They are doing this through a new project called “Where is Obama,” which gives the exact location of the president at all times.

Kim Asendorf, Ole Fach, Kyle McDonald and Jonas Lund are the project’s founders.

McDonald said the group sought to challenge government surveillance through the project, and were inspired by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. He said, “The same way the press made the leaks a story about tracking Snowden, we wanted to turn it into a story about tracking Obama. To show how ridiculous it is to pin stories like this down to a single person, and to give people the feeling that maybe we have the same power that the government does, if only we organize ourselves. With that power, how do we want to use it? Who do we want to track? Will we emulate the government, antagonize them, or reject their example completely?”

In order for the site to work properly, it needs a large base of users. Users give Obama’s location on Google maps. The group asserts that with this information from a significant number of people, “a probable position of President (can be) calculated using a complex algorithm.” If no one has reported his location, it is assumed that Obama is in the White House.

The site represents the American people’s anger over the federal government’s size and scope, specifically related to privacy.

The group said, “The position of the president is a state secret. The White House website shows only Barack Obama’s schedule from the current day, but never dates beyond. The accuracy of this information is controversial. Obama, on the other hand, knows your entire calendar.”

Perhaps most importantly, the project aims to move towards a more transparent government — as Obama initially campaigned on. “Every person in the world can now participate in the supervision of the President,” the group pointed out.
