Submission + - Get Paid to Fight Censorship

IO ERROR writes: We all know that countries like China, Singapore, North Korea, as well as organizations such as the U.S. military, the State of Kentucky, and various corporations, local school districts, public libraries and parents censor their Internet users' web surfing. Bennett Haselton of Peacefire has a solution he calls the Circumventor. And to sweeten the pot, Peacefire is paying $10 per IP address to anyone who installs the anti-censorship software and leaves it running for at least a week. Circumventor creates a small Web service for which Peacefire then shares its URL with "people who need them, such as people serving in the U.S. military overseas, and victims of totalitarian dictatorships such as China, North Korea, and high school." And it's a quick and easy $10 bucks.

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
