Epic Win for Anonymous: How 4chan's Army Conquered the Web
Epic Win for Anonymous is the first book to tell the story of the genesis of the rogue protest groups—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.
