And the gold medals for beating the Chinese Firewall go to:
- Witopia for securing your wireless communications.
- WASTE again for allowing you to create a decentralized and secure private mesh network using an unsecured network, such as the internet.
- Off-the-Record Messaging for enabling you to have private conversations over instant messaging by providing encryption, authentication, deniability and perfect forward secrecy.
- Freedom Stick for providing you with a flash drive pre-loaded with software which will secure the communications of any computer it is slotted into. The drive uses the TOR network to cloak your connections, routing traffic around the world through anonymous computers, thus avoiding detection.
- da Vinci for inspiring this clever circumvention of the Chinese Firewall.
