Does anyone know of efforts to provide proxy servers to Iranian dissidents?
I would like to help. Caveats: I am a networking newbie with some underused hardware of lightweight capability, so I don't know how much I could provide. I don't know if any service I provided would be secure from the regime's intelligence operations.
That said, I would like to know if there is some avenue by which I could help.
I appreciate that open proxy servers can be a risk and nuisance to other users. I think communal returns on free flow of information are momentarily higher than usual, and so change the normal calculation of the community cost/benefit of these things. I'd be glad to configure to monitor for and stop abuse.
If an offline reply makes more sense, I can be reached at gmail. I'm willing to work out offline validation of identity.
