Hey everyone, I am in China’s awesomest city again. The web access here has gotten really quite harsh. I put up a shadowsocks server and it had been eaten by gfw within 3 hours of it going up, which made it feel like a real waste.
Having trouble accomplishing what I came here to do because of it, too. That, and zero hedge is reporting that demand from China for bitcoin is so high that it is almost singularly driving the recent price surge. Does maidsafe plan to strap on a way to access today’s www? I think that might be a killer app for the China market-- by solving that problem, you can then introduce users to the safe net and it’s concepts. Hosts could possibly be compensated as is currently planned for storage. A distributed architecture is more or less the only way to get around this beast of a wall that Cisco called into being so long ago. May they rot in hell for that.
If anyone wants me to visit a hardware vendor for them, or toss something in the mail, or what have you, please don’t hesitate to get ahold of me: firstname.lastname@example.org on google hangouts.
PS: trip is not yet finished, will add more to this post including result of live testing of maidsafe in this hostile network environment.
