New Customer Review - We Are Anonymous

We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec, Anonymous, and the Global Cyber Insurgency
by Parmy Olson [364.168 Ols]

A book about an internet entity as seemingly fast and complicated as Anonymous and 4chan seems like it would be impossible to research, but Parmy Olson does a very good job at coming off well informed. A interesting read on both the technical complexities of hacking as well as the even more hard to understand social uses of the internet and how normal people can be in some ways reprogrammed and de-synthesized. The book often feels like a thriller, focusing on a few individual hackers rather than anonymous as a whole. I highly recommend if you are curious about hackers, Anonymous, or even the effects of the internet on our society. -- review submitted by Wyatt P. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
