Tech-centric human rights group Access has published a handy primer for those looking to participate in a Middle Eastern or North African revolution (and keep their identities private while at it). You know – those secret police are arseholes.
The guide could be a huge boon for would-be dissidents who might otherwise be too scared for their lives to participate in democratic upheaval. But this is really great stuff, neatly organised – how to access blocked sites, use encrypted chats, text securely, and a lot more. Props to Access for doing something more with the internet than propagating cat videos – this guide could literally save someone’s life. And maybe help boot a dictator, too. [Access]
