Freenet: An Open Source, Anonymous Voice for Anyone

,----[ Quote ]
| Freenet is a decentralized lash-up of computing resources designed to foil
| censhorship on the Internet, and allow anyone to publish information
| anonymously from anywhere. It may be of particular value to users in
| censorship-heavy parts of the world such as China, where saying the wrong
| thing on a blog can lead to jail time. As you may recall, some of the first
| reports to the rest of the world about the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989
| came from online users breaking Chinese censorship laws.

Google Grilled on Human Rights

,----[ Quote ]
| Several U.S.-based technology companies have been criticized for their
| activities in China. Google has come under fire for operating a version of
| its search engine that complies with China's censorship rules. Google argues
| that it's better for it to have a presence in the country and to offer people
| some information, rather than for it to not be active in China at all.

Will there be any search engines left that are ethical? Maybe Wikia.

Chinese Internet dissident committed to mental hospital

,----[ Quote ]
| "It is not acceptable that Chinese authorities use such methods to silence
| citizens who have merely peacefully voiced their opinions", expressed the
| organisation in an announcement. Apparently authorities have not abandoned
| the practice of punishing those who have exposed the abuse of power and
| defied censorship by compulsorily committing them to mental institutions. ¬* ¬*
