gAtO - was thinking about the different Tor users in Latin America while checking for a project and this made me wonder what is really going on. Let’s take a look at Brazil first:
All my charts will include from Jan-2012 to Jan 2013 –
Brazil shows from 170k users to 100k users this is normal for Brazil as one of the largest country in SA – But the problem I see right away is the Bridge Relays – these are the kinda secret OR that people use to hide if they think they are being monitored you can see that they have gone down Big-Time- why is this happening I have to ask myself. Is ti that people are becoming more confortable and do not fear the government or are the actual bridge-relays just going down.
Next We go travel Down to Chile:
and we find that they do not have any OR but they have from 1000 users toa high of 1800 users :
Some of the other things is I cannot find OR for quite a few countries Like SPAIN that is ODD and Argentina has over 8 sometimes 10 OR for a Tor users this just makes no sense I also checked for bridges OR but every where there use has gone down – I guess that they are becoming more confortable that Tor works and just go with normal automatic Tor selection.
Let go up and check out Mexico – this one took me by surprise – Only 1 OR – I will have to setup some more test with some new Tor Tools I am working on to get a better picture of what the heck is going donw with Latino Tor Users worldwide – – adios amigos- gATO oUt
