“good olde’ IRC” (… in times of crisis)

Good people of Malawi!

Regarding this alarming and critical issue on internet blocking policies, MACRA Act and media control, I would like to suggest to connect and exchange information in a more reliable, less controllable and more accessible way, which is “good old IRC”! 😎

There is a channel #malawi on irc.freenode.net. For those who are not familiar with IRC (Internet Relay Chat), the easiest is to get an IRC Client and connect to the server chat.freenode.net, then entering the #malawi channel (e.g. command /join #malawi). One can also use the web frontend.

All the best, Lx

P.S. For those of you who’d like to know how to easily access the internet anonymously with a simple SSH tunnel, I’d like to recommend this blog post.
