Tor is free software for enabling anonymous communication. The name is an acronym derived from the original software project name The Onion Router. Tor directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer network consisting of more than six thousand relays to conceal a user's location and usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult for Internet activity to be traced back to the user.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." - Albert Einstein. This quote is especially true in our modern, wired, world with a seemingly limitless combination of technologies. Only through the creative and thoughtful application of technology do lasting solutions arise. The task of the analyst/developer/manager is to apply the appropriate technology and techniques to a problem and manage the inherent complexity of the solution. Too often clients are encouraged to follow the latest technology trends which provide enormous benefits for the developer and easy talking points for the client, but questionable results.

Connexions welcomes your support. Your donations make our work possible. Volunteers always welcome.
Connexions exists to support individuals and groups working for freedom and social justice. We work to maintain and make available a record of the theory and practice of people struggling against oppression and for social change. We believe that the more we know about the struggles, victories, and defeats of the past, and about those who took part in them, the better equipped we will be to bring a new world into being.
Connexions maintains a physical archive of books and documents, and is engaged in an ongoing project to build and expand an indexed digital archive of documents. We try to feature a wide variety of resources reflecting a diversity of viewpoints and approaches to social change within our overall mandate of support for democracy, civil liberties, freedom of expression, universal human rights, secularism, equality, economic justice, environmental responsibility, and the creation and preservation of community.
We are internationalist in our orientation, but as a Canadian-based project we feature an especially extensive collection of Canadian documents and profiles of Canadian activist organizations.
