Subject: [Announce] Wanted: Lantern Ambassadors
To: announce at lists.openitp.org
Lantern is a new type of open source censorship circumvention tool. It
uses peer-to-peer (P2P) technology that connects people in censored
regions with those in uncensored regions to create a free internet for
everyone. We see it as a new approach to an increasingly challenging
situation. It provides users in “free” countries with a passive but
effective way to help, while providing censored users with a "trusted
network" from which they can access blocked information.
Currently, we are looking for Lantern Ambassadors, a group of users to
build the Lantern Network, and thus allow the Lantern team to test the
tool with live users. All that is required is to download the open
source tool, which runs seamlessly in the background, and provide the
team with feedback if necessary.

While the tool is designed to scale to millions of people, it only works
if enough users share their connections to open the internet with
others. As a result, we also encourage you to invite friends to
download the tool as well.
In the last few months, the Lantern team has made great progress with
many improvements in usability, stability and censorship resistance.
They recently reach their 1.0 beta milestone and have been focusing on
improving the core software. As a result, any feedback will be greatly
Join the Lantern movement today and help create a new type of tool that
brings a free internet to everyone. Request an invite now:
