: wanted to know if i knew of anyone actually using circumvention technologies
: currently in a place like Syria, Iran or Libya. many of the people on our
: list are developers of these tools, not activists abroad.

If they don't know that people use circumvention tools in these
countries, perhaps they shouldn't be writing the article.  The trick is,
for two of those countries, the governments are hunting down anyone
admitting to violating the censorship.  Libya doesn't have much internet
access at the moment, so circumvention tool usage is lower than it was
before the civil war.

All circumvention tools have users in those three countries.  Smart
people won't give up the details on how they use them in country.
