http://irrepressible.info in practice

Four days ago, I posted advocating putting code from irrepressible.info onto your site. The goal is to fight censorship by spreading censored text across as many web pages as follows. And as you can see from the green/yellow box in the upper left of this page, I followed my own advice.

Well, here’s my very preliminary report:

1. It looks ugly, and has a pair of mandatory outgong links to Amnesty International and irrepressible.info.

2. Since I picked a small size, there isn’t much text, and even so it’s hard to read.

3. Disappointingly, what little text there is doesn’t seem to change very often beyond a fixed rotating set of snippets.

4. I can’t detect a performance impact on my sites.

Well, there’s a lot more to do, but it’s at least a start.
