Google’s uProxy: A Peer-to-Peer Gateway to Internet Freedom

Quote I like, from the article:

“It’s basically a personalized VPN [Virtual Private Network],” Dixon told Mashable in an interview.


And it doesn’t appear to need a lot of expertise to run it, as opposed to other commercial VPNs. Yasmin Green, principal at Google Ideas, described it during the launch as something that simply requires “two clicks on my side to bypass a repressive regime.”

The other difference is that uProxy won’t depend on a centralized server or a commercial provider, so it won’t be easily blocked by a government or other regime.
