Public Service Announcement - circumventing censored Internet

In light of what's going on in Iran and other places, I'd like to share the Tor bridge link that I just set up.

Go here if you want to learn more about how to volunteer in the same way.

Very cool. More people need to know how to do this.

I went through setting up TOR links during last August's Russo-Georgian war, and it helped hundreds (thousands?) of Georgians get access that was being otherwise scrambled.

Unrestricted information can be literally life-saving.

Oh, it's nice to see you around! I need to add your feed!

Likewise and likewise, as I don't often check my 'friends list'.

Yeah - I got more feed options than entries. Check my last LJ entry for details. Or my site. Thanks for caring!

I've been messing around with Tor for weeks, and for some reason or other I haven't been able to get it to run reliably on my Linux box (specifically Ubuntu Linux). "Could not bind to 127.0.0.1:9050: Address already in use. Is Tor already running?" No, it isn't. Wa-aaah!

I'll keep hacking away at it, though.
