So, it’s come to my attention that people actually do read what I write about dark web sites (I kid)! Back in March of 2018, I wrote a post entitled Reddit Cracks Down on Dark Web Subreddits, and that still holds true. I’m just happy that r/deepweb is still around (probably because they forbid advertising illegal […]
While I happened to be visiting Connect today, I noticed that they had two links promoting sites of theirs. One was a new Blackbook, at http://blkbook7i4cpw4s6.onion. The original Blackbook site was a Facebook-like social network (much like the Connect site I mentioned in the previous post). It was the first social network I joined on Tor, […]

Those of you who’ve used the Tor network probably know that it can be very hard to navigate at times, even when using the different pages that share links. In fact, I too, can relate to this – the first time I used it, I just relied on some of the link lists, which turned out to be semi-disastrous.
My buddy Arne Babenhauserheide, whom I interviewed in Interview: Developer Arne Babenhauserheide of pyFreenet & Infocalypse, recently pointed out an interesting AskReddit post about Freenet. The question was “What’s your deep web story?” Immediately, when someone asks that question, the average reader (including me) tends to expect some kind of horror story. Imagine my surprise at […]
