Seriously cool.

I hadn't considered the identified vis-à-vis anonymous traffic
differential before. Interesting!

In a sense I'd like to do with Tor what the same sense & sensibility has
already done with Wi-Fi with digital hearing aids: code transformation.


I haven't any skill set for coding whatsoever, but a DJ at KRBX Radio
Boise hase expressed some interest (I wrote the Wikipedia article on the
Treefort Music Fest), and I've spoken on the air about Tor, so an
acoustic rendition of Tor is not beyond reason.
