Have you seen those news stories about the US government stealing domain names from people they don’t like? Now, if they do that to us here at Free Keene, you’ll need to use our .bit domain to find us. However, there are a few steps you must take before being able to see .bit domains. Meowbit is an easy-to-use program that allows anyone with a windows computer to access the decentralized .bit domain names. Here’s a guest blog from Meowbit creator Michael W. Dean:
Free Talk Live, the preeminent syndicated liberty radio show, has added a dot-bit mirror, so you can still access the site in case some cranky government control freak ever seizes their domain.
Ian Freeman of Free Talk Live’s site Free Keene also has a dot-bit mirror.

A proxy for viewing dot-bit sites without installing software is here. That’s NOT drone proof, but is a fun kind of “training wheels for dot-bit.”
(Both sites work now in dot-bit. However, in the event of an ICANN take down, both sites will be fully configured to have everything work seamlessly via dot-bit.)
