Freenet project
 
try freenet to connect. This software does not cost a penny; is used best with Google's browser chrome.

Link: http://freenetproject.org/whatis.html

found this through sott.net in an article. If the internet is down in someway, freenet may be a way to get around it, but requires more intimidate friendship then other browser programs (like internet explore.) I am not a computer expert, but may be a good way to connect in the "darknet." This program is very useful to get around particularly without government intervention (I hope.) Again, just read the info link above.

Below, an excerpt from link above:

[start of excerpt]

Freenet has been downloaded over 2 million times since the project started, and used for the distribution of censored information all over the world including countries such as China and the Middle East. Ideas and concepts pioneered in Freenet have had a significant impact in the academic world. Our 2000 paper "Freenet: A Distributed Anonymous Information Storage and Retrieval System" was the most cited computer science paper of 2000 according to Citeseer, and Freenet has also inspired papers in the worlds of law and philosophy. Ian Clarke, Freenet's creator and project coordinator, was selected as one of the top 100 innovators of 2003 by MIT's Technology Review magazine.

An important recent development, which very few other networks have, is the "darknet": By only connecting to people they trust, users can greatly reduce their vulnerability, and yet still connect to a global network through their friends' friends' friends and so on. This enables people to use Freenet even in places where Freenet may be illegal, makes it very difficult for governments to block it, and does not rely on tunneling to the "free world".
