Privacy Defending ISP - Calyx

Calyx logo

Many ISPs or other Internet services in these current days will often voluntarily co-operate with the authorities without requiring warrants and such. Some will be even working directly with the MPAA/RIAA. However there are some people out there, like Nick Merrill who are are totally not like that.

Today he is raising money to start a non-profit ISP and mobile phone service that will be designed to resist surveillance, with things like encryption, minimal logging and mostly by challenging requests by the authorities that are abusive and/or illegal and/or unconstitutional.

So if you do live in the U.S.A. and more precisely NY for now, you could be very interested in checking out Calyx Institute and perhaps donating via Indiegogo or via their Paypal form.

Also, check out the people on the advisory board.
