 distributed and then ship it in alphas?

 Maybe there's a misunderstanding here.

 The proxies (snowflakes) are run by random internet users in uncensored
 regions.  They just need to navigate to a certain website and then their
 browser takes over.  Distributing it widely means hosting the badge on
 say, torproject.org, or some other highly trafficked site.

 It's the same model as flashproxy (https://crypto.stanford.edu/flashproxy
