= a globally cooperative censorship circumvention tool build on the Little Shoot peer-to-peer platform
"Lantern is a globally cooperative censorship circumvention tool build on the Little Shoot peer-to-peer platform. It lets people living in relatively uncensored countries to donate a small part of their bandwidth to help people living under censorship gain access to the open internet.
What it means: Kind of like how SETI@home lets you help search for extraterrestrial life, Lantern lets you contribute your computing power to solve global censorship." (http://www.shareable.net/blog/10-projects-to-liberate-the-web)
