Back in 1977 we sent the two Voyager probes out into the universe. Contained within were “the golden record” sharing the sounds of Earth. (Read more @ Recently the golden record was pressed into vinyl and released to the public. I was a Kickstarter backer and received my boxes set yesterday. Check out my photos of this amazing set below. You can also pre-order the non-crowdfunded edition @ OzmaRecords.

So what IS the anonabox?
The anonabox is a networking device that provides anonymous Internet access and encryption, and helps to bypass censorship in places where access to the Internet is limited.

Reliable Anonymity
The anonabox has been developed and refined for the sole purpose of running the open source software Tor, considered the best and most secure way to access the Internet anonymously. All traffic coming out of or going into your computer or network is encrypted this way. The result is strong, secure anonymity. Using the anonabox hides your location, as well as all the other personal data that leaks through ordinary Internet use. We noticed also that pageload times and end user experience is significantly faster than when running the Tor browser bundle software, because all the hard work is being done in the background by the anonabox.

Encryption for Everyone
The anonabox easily encrypts Internet usage with a simple device that secures all web traffic, not just the traffic coming from one program. No software to download or configure, no login credentials, no registration, just plug it in and your network connection is encrypted. The anonabox also allows people to use programs over Tor that never supported it before or required complicated configuration like Skype, Safari and Filezilla, to name just a few. Also the default firewall configuration protects your computer or network from outside access.

I don’t have much to say at this point as I’ve only been wearing it for three days, two of which I was sick. Add to that the fact that I’ve not worn a watch in something like twenty years so it just plain feels weird having something on my wrist. That’s my biggest impression of it so far.
