This is the story of the 'Anti-Facebook': a site that radically encourages anonymity. It was the 4chan group Anonymous which famously defended WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange by hacking and taking down MasterCard's and Visa's websites. Longtime blogger and member Cole Stryker writes with a voice that is engrossingly informative and approachable. Whether examining the Anonymous-provoked Jessi Slaughter saga and how cyberbullying is part of our new reality, or explaining how Sarah Palin's email account was leaked, Epic Win for Anonymous proves the group's transformative cultural impact, how it has influenced - and how such groups will increasingly influence - society at large.
