TOR is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis

How To Create A Hidden Service Tor Site To Set Up An Anonymous Website Or Server (via MakeUseOf)

I've never heard of this until now... has anyone had any experience with it?

Interesting...

This is the first I've heard of that.

Sounds like the next evolution is to have TOR nodes that you can connect to, then access those sites. That would be cool -- it would make it simple for people to get access as most people don't have the skills to setup TOR.

You haven't heard of Tor before or something in that article about Tor?  :tellme:
 
Don't mean to sound like I know more than others but I thought Tor is big around the world. First heard of it many years ago, used it for a week or so but really not that paranoid about privacy to go through either being a user or make become a server.

My experience with it was it works but slower much like proxies. It's been used and abused in the way you would expect from something like it.

I think he meant the way you can have an anonymous web site through TOR.
