Further to my recent posts concerning government-busting technology, is this article from Gawker. A sample –

“Silk Road, a digital black market that sits just below most internet users’ purview, does resemble something from a cyberpunk novel. Through a combination of anonymity technology and a sophisticated user-feedback system, Silk Road makes buying and selling illegal drugs as easy as buying used electronics—and seemingly as safe. It’s Amazon—if Amazon sold mind-altering chemicals.”

Thanks to the anonymizing network Tor, and the ‘crypto-currency’ Bitcoin, those who wish to ignore attempts by the state to interfere with their natural right to live their lives as they see fit can do so with a much lower level of risk than before. I look forward to seeing many more developments in this vein.
