Description

(transcribed from conversation in IRC among crazy people)
"""
... the fun with censorship races : run a Tor radio channel? (unidirectional FEC spread highly redundant payloads of the current bundles. if a region is upstream constrained in conflict, outage, or other, just one can get a good copy, then locally redist. much further

assuming your wifi radios or rtl-sdr dongles or fancy SDRs speak it...
(for wifi this requires monitor mode. rtl-sdr is receive only. good sdr not cheap. few of many problems...)

...

There used to be a company that distributed Usenet over broadcast satellite. They didn't carry binaries due to limited bandwidth but there wasn't anything stopping them from including a few here and there.

...

holy shit i bet a NSA TAO NIGHTSTAND could beam Tor to a whole metropolis in minutes!
