"Psiphon" anti-censorware program articles

Echo: The Psiphon network frustrates censors by using trusted friends (via Ronald Deibert)

MIT Technology Review has published a nice feature article about the Citizen Lab's software, psiphon. I thought some of you who know about the project might find it interesting.

I've mentioned Psiphon a few times myself, mostly because of the way it has, let us say, wide-ranging anti-censorship applications.

Note also Black marks appearing for commercial internet filters?

"We citizens don't have access to the block lists [of prohibited Web sites] that are put together by these companies because that is considered proprietary. Even researchers like myself can't explore the filtering technology that is being sold and used by governments around the world."

Sigh ... :-(
