what i wrote in the description.

Music affects our perceptions of a video. So, change the original, sentimental Google Dear Sophie commercial with horror music.

Original: Google Chrome: Dear Sophie

The Internet’s main engineers have asked the architects of Tor—networking software designed to make Web browsing private—to consider turning the technology into an Internet standard.

If widely adopted, such a standard would make it easy to include the technology in consumer and business products ranging from routers to apps. This would, in turn, allow far more people to browse the Web without being identified by anyone who might be spying on Internet traffic.

#China   #SaudiArabia   #Cuba   #Russia  -- all countries set to join the #UNHRC  this week. Coincidentally, all countries we've been seeing a lot of video activism from lately--videos that don't shed the best light on their candidacy. To begin with, in Cuba, dissidents are using limited technology and internet access to document protest movements and repression by authorities on peaceful demonstrations. Activists, for instance, say this video, taken early this year, is the reason why rapper and dissident Angel Yunier Remón, "#ElCritico" is in prison. They also report he is near death in a hunger strike behind bars. Because of censorship, the lack of access to activists, and the highly politicized situation, it's difficult to assess with certainty what is true. I'd love to hear any insight on El Critico's case.
