Re: Time Warner bad / VPS recommendations

Wow, that is a very cool idea. This could even be turned into a non-profit organization... We could take donations to support running Tor exit nodes which, in turn, supports everyone's ability to use the Internet without fear of censorship, harassment, and authoritarian (or up-and-coming authoritarian) governments.

What do you all think?

By the way, there was a Nova special last night on the NSA and their "minority report" like computer system in development:

Interesting. That is $40/month with 400 GB limit. I have a collocation
for around 110 EUR per month for 100 Mbit/s best-effort with no limit
on data transfer and yet without any problems with ISP (they said that
it is not their issue what I am running on my server).

So ... maybe ... there is an idea. I could offer to setup Tor nodes
with this ISP with simple CPU/RAM/diskless/self updatable/no logs
systems for 100 Mbit/s default policy exit nodes. If anybody would
like to monthly contribute/donate money for collocation and this
initial hardware. Or few people together.

I just do not know what would ISP say if they would have multiple such
nodes there. Maybe they would become less liberal.
