Mr. Egghead is wanted by the Chinese authorities for thwarting censorship, which may be a mark in his favor: Why get involved in a technology that is designed to be censorship-resistant unless freedom on the Internet or elsewhere is important to you and financial freedom could theoretically be considered equal in importance to freedom of speech and freedom from warrantless searches and seizures?
