Hong Kong Protestors Using Mesh Messaging Empty Hong Kong Protestors Using Mesh Messaging

How do you communicate when the government censors the internet? With a peer-to-peer mesh broadcasting network that doesn't use the internet.

That's exactly what Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters are doing now, thanks to San Fransisco startup Bridgefy's Bluetooth-based messaging app. The protesters can communicate with each other — and the public — using no persistent managed network.

This is kind of cool even though it won't work without a lot of users in an area, obviously not a problem in Hong King.



The policy or practice on the part of people in positions of authority of restricting the freedom and responsibilities of those subordinate to them in the subordinates' supposed best interest.
