There’s nothing evil Google can do with the extra WiFi data

The road to tyranny is paved with good intentions of ignorant activists. We should not have laws preventing StreetView from taking pictures of naked people in their bedrooms, we should instead expect people to close their curtains. We should not have laws preventing StreetView from collecting unencrypted data, we should expect people to encrypt. Freedom means personal responsibility, getting rid of personal responsibility gets rid of freedom

Telex: Anticensorship in the Network Infrastructure

Telex is a new approach to circumventing Internet censorship that is intended to help citizens of repressive governments freely access online services and information. The main idea behind Telex is to place anticensorship technology into the Internet’s core network infrastructure, through cooperation from large ISPs. Telex is markedly different from past anticensorship systems, making it easy to distribute and very difficult to detect and block.
