Re: [tor-talk] Bridge Communities?

That would be lovely, since I am not a coder.

I can barely code proofs-of-concept in python as prototypes for demonstrative purposes.

Competent C/C++ coders would be much appreciated.

Thank you for the offer to contribute.

There's really nothing keeping you from making a private bridge network.

Indeed. One can even make its own (private) Tor network. It will require
a considerable amount of learning, though.

It would be interesting to see several competing Tor networks. May or
may not happen in long term future, if Tor can attract much more users
and relays.

Alex probable won't be up for creating an alternative Tor network with
that threat model. As soon as you host a relay or directory authority,
it's difficult (impossible?) to stay anonymous, you move yourself into
the target line by doing so.

With the current Tor network model, this is apparent.

I might fork the Tor codebase and redesign the network from the ground up,
and see what I can come up with.

Should be interesting.

Even if Tor cannot be salvaged, working with the traditional 3rd
generation onion routing paradigm should be educational and instructive.
