TorPark threatens to enforce net neutrality

The new TorPark package combines two open-source efforts -- a portable Firefox browser and the Tor onion router -- into a single platform that threatens to enforce net neutrality whether the carriers like it or not. TorPark provides a secure, portable and anonymous package for web browsing that prevents packet inspection, filtering, and blocking.

In early February, I predicted this very confluence of packages -- i.e., the fact that combining Firefox and Tor (or OpenVPN, SSL VPNs, etc.) provides an almost insurmountable challenge to the telcos and cable companies who threaten to perform deep packet inspection on consumers' traffic. They can't say I didn't warn 'em.

And TorPark will only get better when Google and Yahoo bring their developers to bear.

Dear Carriers:

Don't hate the players. Hate the game.

Sincerely, TorPark
