Dear CENO team:

An extremely worth-while and timely project. I wish you well.

I think that the deliberate exclusion of sites from popular search engine listings is one of the worst forms of censorship on the Web. Perhaps the only way to combat this is to create a search engine that has no commercial or political motives behind it: an "open source" search engine if you like. But it would have to be made popular and that's the difficult part.

More determined censoring, I suppose, is where a particular government blocks content at specific IP addresses from entering its jurisdiction. I imagine that a set of obscured relays could manage this by making censored content available via unblocked addresses. This could, however, end up as a cat and mouse chase in which the content consumer would have to be able to hop quickly to ever-changing unblocked IP addresses.

Many difficult problems but well worth overcoming.
