Politics: Proxy Servers Revisited
Just a quick update to my post the other day on proxies for the Iranian protestors. The San Francisco Chronicle has an article on Austin Heap, the fellow whose web site I linked to the other day. He and a number of collaborators are doing a lot of hard work trying to keep lines of communication open from inside Iran.
If any of you are trying the proxy server thing (as I am with my home machine), be sure to check this update. You'll need to make some adjustments, since the (current!) Iranian government isn't making this easy, naturally.
There are other information tunnels, which rapidly get to be beyond my own hardware resources and hacking skills, but many people seem to be at work on these. One interesting addition to the fray is the anti-Scientology group known as Anonymous. Since my opinion of Scientology is nearly as low as my opinion of the Iranian government, I can only welcome this meeting of the minds.
