Subject: Crowds code NOW AVAILABLE for Unix

Crowds is a new system for protecting your anonymity while you browse
the web.  We have recently obtained a release for the code from AT&T 
and have been testing the system with a handful of volunteers.  
Thanks to their efforts, we now feel more prepared to support a larger 
user community.

So, if you are interested in browsing the web with better anonymity
than the Anonymizer, check out


There are two steps. The first is obtaining the code. After you accept
the license agreement, expect a 24 hour turnaround to receive the code
by e-mail. Second, if you would like to join our crowd, fill out the
registration page, and expect 24 hours before you are admitted. (These
steps can proceed in parallel.)

The system requires Perl 5.003 or higher, and has been tested on
SunOS, Solaris, and Irix.  Our next target is Linux.
