Watch while you can: Every movie and show leaving Netflix in October

Hong Kong protesters turn to mesh networks to evade China’s censorship

The Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, at night, with lights
The rather cramped streets of Hong Kong are currently lined with tens of thousands of people — the Umbrella Revolution. The Chinese government, as always, has blocked and censored a number of social media sites so that mainland China can’t see what’s going on in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong protesters won’t be so easily thwarted, however: They are already using a mesh networking app called FireChat, which allows the protesters to communicate freely without any kind of centralized cellular or WiFi network.
