The Internet

+ - P2P Internet Hops, Skips and Jumps over Municipal

Submitted by ATMD
ATMD (986401) writes "The BBC is reporting on a new effort called "psiphon", intended to grant full, uncensored net access to everyone with a connection, regardless of how restricted it is.

It depends on people in uncensored countries running the program too: the censoree connects to X anonymous Western user, who then proxies their requests and relays data back over an encrypted connection - so not only does the censoree now have access to everything he wants, his nasty ol' government can't see what he's doing and lock him up for it.

I know I'll be running this when it comes out."
It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - 'Chip and bin' to measure waste

Submitted by
ATMD writes "The BBC is reporting on new "technobins", using (presumably) RFID technology to log just how much rubbish the people of Alnwick, England, are throwing out.
From the article:
About 4,000 households in Alnwick will take part in the five-month project to monitor how much rubbish is recycled. Special equipment fitted to refuse vehicles will read the chips in the bins and instantly record the amount of recycled waste.
"
