I loved the story about how a subject/group of individuals, such as Anonymous, started as a prank and ended up as a movement and social revolution. The author was hard to listen to at times and you have to know that instead of "hashtag", she uses "pound". Annoying oversight on her part that could've made it slightly easier to listen to. Great story.
This book must have been extremely difficult to read even for the seasoned IT professional. Nice detailed background of the phenomenon known as "Anonymous." It would really be nice if they could hack our government's student loan program and erase all that debt! Haha!
She does excellent accents overall, but especially like her Topiary.
Engaging overview of Anonymous and the related spin-off, LulzSec. The author does a good job explaining the nature of the collective, its origins, and how the media and law enforcement often misunderstood its organization (or lack thereof), its aims (various), and its members' motivations for involvement (again, various). I think it would have been a fuller and more complete book if it had taken more time to explore how online activity impacts psychology (including eschewing societal norms and mob mentality). However, even without this, the author does an excellent job explaining technical aspects of DDOS attacks, hacking, and the masking of identity on the internet, as well as biographical discussions of some major players, such that the book still stands well on its own.
it was very informative, detailed, perfectly performance. it made me sad to finish it.
Ghost in the Wires, another one rich in relevant information and masterfully performed.
