Begin NedaNet, the Mullah Bypass:
[...] a network of hackers formed to support the democratic revolution in Iran. Our mission is to help the Iranian people by setting up networks of proxy severs, anonymizers, and any other appropriate technologies that can enable them to communicate and organize — a network beyond the censorship or control of the Iranian regime.

NedaNet doesn't have leaders or a manifesto or even much in the way of organization. We're not affiliated with any nation or religion. We're just computer hackers and computer users from all over the planet doing what we can to help the Iranian people in their struggle for freedom.


Think of me as a cut-out. I have very carefully not asked who our contacts in Iran are. I don't even know who most of the rest of the NedaNet people are, and don't intend to try to find out; they're basically just handles on an IRC channel from whom I get URLs and files. And for any jihadi interested in asking me questions face to face, I've got some bullets slathered in pork fat to make you feel extra special welcome.

Realize that, should you wish to join the effort, there are real risks involved. However 1. those Iranians marching against the mad Mullahs need all the help and support they can get, as the outcome of their struggle and its implications worldwide go beyond a simple quarrel over fraudulent national elections, and 2. I believe Obama far from "being shy" is using this as an opportunity to weaken America even more — by being the anti-Reagan, on purpose. Call that his Joker Syndrome if you will, as summarized by Michael Caine in Nolan's The Dark Knight:
"Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
While having some ice cream, perhaps.

So if nothing else, initiatives such as NedaNet show that in the information age individuals all around the world can bypass both Iranian State terrorists and the most defective US President ever.

And that's definitely worth it.


Under Reconstruction

Hey, where's all the stuff?

I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.

As of January 16, 2021, only basic blogging is implemented.

Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...

So all the stuff is coming back?

Yes, thank you for your patience.

Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
