You can't imagine how enjoyable it is when you find a new circumvention tool and it works! It's like changing the world! So imagine that you need something from the store but for some reason you can't go outside. So you could send someone else to the store to get the thing for you. And assuming they can go outside they can get the thing and bring it back to you. So that's basically what a proxy does. The problem is, that for example about Web proxies, the government each day blocks millions of them so that the people can not use. Or about the tools like Ultrasurf, Freegate, whatever they are, they will block ports or try to prevent users from using the circumvention tools. But this is the creativity: Looking for the new ones and looking for the updated versions. Looking for information about it. Because you need it. When there is a will there is a way. Psiphon works like a standard Web site. you just go to the psiphon Web site and there you will see a little bar where you can enter the Web site address you want to visit. You hit "enter" and then you will see the Web site address which is normally blocked on your connection. Proxy technology is very simple. I remember, I gave some testimony to a US-government buddy that was talking about whether people who use proxies in committing a crime should be punished more harshly for having done that. And I was trying to explain to them that proxies are very simple and I created a proxy in about 5 lines of computer code. And it worked. So the technology behind proxies is not really complexe in any way. That doesn't necessarily mean that using them to circumvent censorship is always easy or reliable or safe. But proxy technology is really extremely simple as far as technology goes. If you want to use a metaphor you could say it's sort of a relay race, where you're passing a baton to somebody else and then they get it to the destination that you want and vice versa.
