Yes, it's really a problem to find a tech-savvy person to run a private
bridge outside the censored regions. Recently, I wanted to test
obfsproxy and that adds to the problem! I had to find a person having
enough time and knowledge to configure an obfsproxy server out there!
i've been thinking about the bridge issues.
Specifically about the fact that the entrance barrier to install a
bridge it's quite high.
- someone with technical skills to install a bridge
- an internet exposed server where you can install your own software
that run in background
Those kind of requirements provide a very high entrance barrier for
anyone that would like to "support freedom of speech".
Any idea to make the whole process of "making a machine a Tor bridge"
more automated is great! Right now, Vidalia interface is really
straightforward in setting up a Tor bridge, but to make it operational,
the port forwarding part which should be done manually (in most cases)
is a hassle for a normal user.
