Al-Jazeera Video: US government funding 'shadow' networks
"The Obama administration is funding so-called
"shadow" internet and cell phone networks
allow activists to operate independently of government controls
The "shadow" networks are
portable kits that fit in suitcases
, which could maintain ad-hoc computer networks useful to activists in places where internet is either inaccessible or being monitored.
One team of technologists in Washington, DC, has received a government grant to build a portable network.
Al Jazeera's Monica Villamizar had the opportunity to meet them. She reports from the US capital."
