U.S. Spreads Democracy Through Shadow Networks

The Obama administration is leading a global effort to deploy “shadow” Internet and Mobile phone systems that citizens of repressed governments can use to bypass censorship in their native countries. The initiative is funded with $2 million from a State Department grant and the Internet is deployed from a small briefcase.

The idea is to smuggle the briefcase (full of Internet) across the border and quickly set it up to allow wireless communication over a wide area with a link to the world wide web.
