Christopher "moot" Poole: The case for anonymity online

Moot talks about his website, 4chan, and the power/price of anonymity online, especially when taking into account the drastic loss of privacy/anonymity brought about by social networking.


__________
He could have definitely made a stronger argument for anonymity, and he absolutely downplayed the negatives of Internet anonymity, but I found the video interesting nonetheless. Mostly because I wrote my thesis on the impact of the Internet on the social development of adolescent males. Also, I had a dream about moot the other night. I have no idea what it was about, I just know he was in it, so I think my brain has been hacked.

Thoughts on Anonymous, anonymity, the Internet, cultural evolution?
