Firechat App Facilitates Social Change in China

This article, written by Christina Bonnington, describes how the app "Firechat" is currently being used in China during political protests against political corruption. The app can be used to remotely and anonymously link devices together into "wireless mesh networks," giving protestors a place where they can communicate safely out of reach of the prying eyes of politicians and law enforcement.
