Myself and some others are trying to put together a system of communication for the Iranian protesters to use to communicate between each other and broadcast in a way that's unblockable. The basic premise basically involves two seperate halves: The first half is the backbone, where we have a lot of technology related things. Jabber servers that you can connect to as a tor hidden server, websites, a forum, irc channel, whatever. Basically, a place where the information can be sent to, and sent from, in a way that can be vetted for accuracy. The other half is the main distribution service. Shotgunned SMS to the entire Iranian nation so that no one can be singled out, prerecorded messages sent to people over the phone, a short wave radio network, etc. Information gets passed down from the backbone, and then distributed over this, and then finally to the everyday protester fighting for his or her rights. We want to be able to bring up two new means of communication for every one that they block. If we can set this up in a sustainable way, that makes it impractical if not outright impossible to stem the flow of information, it can solve one of the biggest issues posed by the protesting and any possible revolutionary measures: Organized communication. You have to take into account that with internet access being unreliable at best, simple websites and proxies are not going to be able to reach everyone. But by the same token, lower tech measures are also more easily compromised. We've got to figure out a way to organize this so that it can operate even with the assumption that parts of it are being listened in on, and in the case of things like the short wave radio, even having false info broadcasted. irc.anonnet.org #iran.hydra #iran.hydra - WebIRC - AnonNet Most of the discussion so far is being done over IRC, but we'll definitely be looking at this thread. Anyone who wants to help, please join. Any ideas - even bad ones - can help us figure things out, and people might see flaws in our logic that we've missed.
