Creativity & Mayhem: Anonymous Communities at Work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Communities like Anonymous and 4chan's /b/ create Internet culture, change politics and make news. But how do they build trust, share work and intervene in the world? How can new groups and movements use anonymity and pseudonymity? While Facebook and Google push for an Internet of real names and persistent identities, we will present an alternate universe of thriving, chaotic, bizarre and effective cultures created by nobody in particular - and their implications for activism, politics and creativity online.

Gabriella Coleman, Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy at McGill University, is the go-to authority on Anonymous for TEDGlobal, The New York Times, Al Jazeera, Fast Company and NPR.

Moderating is Finn Brunton, Assistant Professor of Information at the University of Michigan's School of Information and author of Spam: A Flood, A Theory, A History.
