My first post will talk of my amazement with The Onion Routing Project (TOR).
In such a prevalent age of technology, we see more and more of an impact of it on our daily lives.
When dealing with something that important, it is a good idea to implement security measures.
Perhaps you want to voice an opinion on something and fear recourse from doing such, whether you live in a free country or not, TOR may be an answer to the problem of non-anonymity.
TOR provides a method to hide you from a censoring or oppressing power by not showing your IP address.
My understanding is that it operates much like a chain of proxies, and it would take extreme lengths of work to find you, since basically the entire network would have to collude to reveal you.
If you would like such added security, or have any questions go to: http://www.torproject.org/ to learn more.
Should you obtain TOR, and use Mozilla Firefox as your web-browser, check out this handy add-on:
