Our philosophy

Recently there were inquiries about whether we have any political intentions or expectations in making this software. We would like to clarify about it.

We believe everybody should be able to access the information he wants to read as he wishes, without disruption or additional costs other than the standard fees for the ISP. We do not assume which kind of opinions one should bear upon reading this information, but we assume such rights of these readers: they shouldn’t be forced to open BBC Chinese or Falungong or a Chinese gov media page, when they try to attain the information they desire.

The developers in this project interacted with researchers from many different political parties, formal or informal, and received their support. We see this as a normal form of academic interactions in engineering designs, with no political preference.

We encourage, however, any party of any political positions, to popularize our software, if it supports our belief, or if it believes it can help to assuage the influence of its adversities. Yes, it’s better to be neutral and objective than partisan. Thus, the disssemination of our software by any party should not be seen as some connections between its political interest and ours.

Testing service

We can provide testing service, free of charge, without explicit bandwidth or speed or time limit, with our ArkC software pack. Proper use required.

You can request a proxy service by sending an email with a 2048-bit RSA public key file to [email protected], and we’ll configure a service dedicated for you with full configuration files, usually in less than 24 hours.
