UW CSE and Brave New Software partnered to develop uProxy, a project seeded by Google Ideas.
One out of every three people live in societies where free expression is severely restricted. When corrupt or repressive groups control the Internet’s infrastructure, they often subject their citizens’ Internet traffic to censorship, surveillance, and misdirection. uProxy enables friends to provide each other with a trusted pathway to the web.
This week, Googlers and UW CSE students are participating in a uProxy hackathon in the Allen Center.
