A group of German hackers is planning to launch a communication satellite in order to stop internet censorship. The project is called Hackerspace Global Grid and a satellite will provide connections to independent stations on earth. The connections will be a network of nodes and it will be independent of the internet. This project is a reaction for SOPA and other laws all over the world. This is not surprising at all, people react when someone is trying to restrict their freedom and can do amazing things. Germans want to launch a satellite and in Sweden they have created a religion for file sharing. I imagine that this is not the end and we will see something similar in other countries.
