Accessing the Web at Work: Stick It to the Man

Free Image Hosting at allyoucanupload.comI was telling my friend, the kid, about my new site last week, and he informed me that his company is now filtering out most of the good things found on the web. Thus, it was going to be tough for him to check in regularly. “How dare they?” I responded. I told him that there were countless ways to get past his company’s “Nick Burns” IT Police. I also mentioned that I had success using Google Mobile as a proxy to bypass company restrictions, and that I would send him some other solutions too. So to help my friend enjoy the net, I set off in search of ways to beat the IT Police. I quickly found this great article by Lifehacker’s Gina Trapani, Geek to Live: Survive IT Lockdown. So if you are tired of being restricted to “work related” i.e. boring, web sites by your company, check it out. Use these tools at your own risk, and happy surfing.
