Xiangsheng traditional Chinese comedy

“Crosstalk” also known as xiangsheng (相声) is a traditional Chinese comedic performance dating back to the late Qing Dynasty.  In the form of a dialogue between two performers or much less often, a solo monologue. Traditionally the actor wears a long blue colored gown and keeps fan in his hand.  The language is rich in pun and allusions and is delivered in a rapid, bantering style. Even nowadays, xiangsheng is one of China’s foremost and most popular performing arts, and is typically performed in the Beijing dialect. The acts would sometimes include singing and musical instruments.

How to stay anonymous online

Anonymity networks protect people living under repressive regimes from surveillance of their Internet use. But the recent discovery of vulnerabilities in the most popular of these networks — Tor — has prompted computer scientists to try to come up with more secure anonymity schemes.

At the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium in July, researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne will present a new anonymity scheme that provides strong security guarantees but uses bandwidth much more efficiently than its predecessors. In experiments, the researchers’ system required only one-tenth as much time as similarly secure experimental systems to transfer a large file between anonymous users.
