From the article:

For people living in countries where the the government monitors and censors the Internet, help is on the way. It may be in a smartphone app or it could be a clandestine wireless network that looks innocuous but allows people to communicate out of the view of government censors.

A project funded by the US government and developed by a Washington think tank called “Commotion Wireless” is being readied for delivery early next year. The effort seeks to promote free expression online and takes advantage of the fact that more people are using mobile devices. Such a system “is useful for people to communicate in situations when governments don’t want them to,” said Sascha Meinrath, head of the project at the New America Foundation.
