Rather than spend 100 million dollars trying to combat censorship in this manner, wouldn't it make more sense just to stop trading with nations that violate what many consider to be basic human rights?
Sure trading with China is > than 100M $$ :)
<added>So, given that there seems to be money to be made, who wants to teach me how to hack around Chinese censorship systems, lol... ;)</added>
Just burns me that the U.S. still has China on the "most favored nations" trading list at the same time the talking heads "deplore" the nation's civil policies.
I was a participant in the TriangleBoy set-up, until I noticed traffic was halted then read that most users were CIA and FBI.
It's the attitudes and policies within the Chinese government that need to change. Spending 100 million on technology is a perfect example of throwing money at a sticky problem while doing very little to solve it. Eases the conscience and allows them to say, "we tried".
The real issue is censorship. Hope they find a way to solve it, but I don't think 100 million will do the job.
