Georgia Tech Looking into Web Censorship

GA Tech has a project going on called "Encore," and it looks to see who and or what is censoring web pages around the world. Do any [H]'ers have any experience with this code? Sound off at the discussion link below. Help fight the bad guys with a single line of code!

Encore collects information about how Web users experience censorship. It causes every visitor to your Web site to attempt to access small pieces of data from other, potentially-censored Web sites, and sends us information about whether or not each visitor could access those censored sites. These measurements happen automatically in the background after your page has loaded and do not impact your site's performance or user experience; most users won't ever notice them or realize they are helping to measure Web censorship.
