Product Description

Epic Win for Anonymous is the first book to tell the story of the genesis of the rogue protest group—including Anonymous, LulzSec, and AntiSec—currently changing our world. Longtime Web culture critic Cole Stryker traces their growing importance to mainstream news, community activism, and new creative media. Starting with the "anti-Facebook," the web community at 4chan.org, the book follows the evolution of Internet culture from humorous memes to political game-changers. Whether chronicling how Sarah Palin’s personal email account was hacked or dissecting the threat of cyber-bullying, Stryker’s engrossing and approachable book proves the transformative cultural impact of the Internet and the communities it sustains.

Praise for Epic Win for Anonymous:

"This sharp guide avoids the fear, condescension, and hand-waving that dominate mainstream coverage of Internet culture … satisfying and thoroughly researched." —Nick Douglas, author of Twitter Wit and editor at Slacktory
