Slashdot | Getting Around Web Censors With Flickr

This is extra juicy interesting! The system uses steganography (I seem to recall something called 'stego' from back in my geekier days) to hide messages in images.

Slashdot | Getting Around Web Censors With Flickr:
'Life is about to become more difficult for countries trying to censor access to foreign websites. A system dubbed Collage will allow users in these countries to download stories from blocked sites while visiting seemingly uncontroversial sites such as Flickr.'
For visual learners: this earlier story at GigaOM explains the system with a diagram.

Series tie-in: North Korea is mentioned in one of the stories and in the future, Korea is reunited.
