Silk Road (anonymous marketplace)
For the historical trade routes, see Silk Road. In 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shut down the website[12] and arrested Ross William Ulbricht under charges of being the site's pseudonymous founder "Dread Pirate Roberts".[4] On 6 November 2013, Silk Road 2.0 came online, run by former administrators of Silk Road.[13] It too was shut down and the alleged operator was arrested on 6 November 2014 as part of the so-called "Operation Onymous”. Ulbricht was convicted of all seven charges in U.S. Federal Court in Manhattan relating to Silk Road and was sentenced to life in prison.[14] Further charges alleging murder-for-hire remain pending in Maryland.[2][15][16] Silk Road was founded in February 2011.[17] The name "Silk Road" comes from a historical network of trade routes, started during the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD), between Europe, India, China, and many other countries on the Afro-Eurasian landmass.

Anonymouse.org AnonWWW Many mice surf the web under the illusion that their actions are private and anonymous. Unfortunately, this is not the way it is. Dark Net (TV series) Showtime greenlit the series in November 2015. It was created by Mati Kochavi, the founder of Vocativ, and is co-produced by Part2 Pictures.[2] Tor (anonymity network) Tor (previously an acronym for The Onion Router)[4] is free software for enabling online anonymity and censorship resistance. Tor directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer network consisting of more than five thousand relays[5] to conceal a user's location or usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult to trace Internet activity, including "visits to Web sites, online posts, instant messages, and other communication forms", back to the user[6] and is intended to protect the personal privacy of users, as well as their freedom and ability to conduct confidential business by keeping their internet activities from being monitored.

How to Completely Anonymize Using Anomos How to Completely Mask & Anonymize Your BitTorrent Traffic Using Anomos A couple times a year, I hear about someone I know receiving that oh-so-scary letter from their ISP telling them to stop torrenting. ISPs will go as far as throttling your bandwidth (without lowering your bill), and sometimes even reporting you to authorities. The next thing you know, you're being summoned to court for copyright violations. Adam Reed Early work[edit] Adam Reed and his partner Matt Thompson started out at Cartoon Network doing various odd jobs until they came up with their own show called High Noon Toons in the mid-90s. High Noon Toons was a 3-hour programming block of cartoons hosted by cowboy hand puppets Haas and Lil' Jo (a Bonanza pun). While working on this show, Matt and Adam were usually heavily intoxicated and the two eventually got reprimanded for lighting one of the prop sets on fire.[3]

Beyond The Bitcoin Bubble A few months ago, while visiting a hacker friend’s magnificent new San Francisco loft, he gestured to a little alcove stuffed with server racks and said: “And over there are the Bitcoin mines.” I smiled and nodded, thinking, Oh, right, Bitcoin. Is that still a thing? Andy, if you’re reading this, I apologize. Windows hack for Web-surfing privacy High performance access to file storage Those who read our article "Internet anonymity for Windows power users" know that I've been in quest of a way to assign the IE browser cache, cookies, typed URLs and history to RAM so they're never written to disk. Of course you can set your browser to delete the cache on exit, but there will be traces on the HDD; and you can block cookies or use a cookie management program, but blocking them makes surfing inconvenient, and cookie managers also leave traces on the HDD. And then there's the history, which catalogues your comings and goings for posterity.

Against the background of renewed concerns about the integrity of the euro zone and the imposition of capital controls in Cyprus, the price of a bitcoin has tripled over the last month and reached more than $141 for 1 BTC.
