We Are All Anonymous – Gabriella Coleman, David Auerbach, and James Grimmelmann discuss the culture and politics of anonymity online at Triple Canopy, Brooklyn on May 23 2012.

What is the logic of Anonymous, the online army, agent of chaos, and seeker of justice? What is the relationship between the online message board 4chan, the legacy of Internet masquerade, and Occupy Wall Street? What does the thriving culture of anonymity online tell us about the depravations of Facebook and those who profit from it? Anthropologist and technology critic Gabriella Coleman and critic and programmer David Auerbach discuss these questions and their recent articles in Triple Canopy with lawyer and technologist James Grimmelmann.
