Erstmals packen die Hacker aus. Ende des Jahres 2010 nahmen weltweit Tausende an den digitalen Angriffen der Hackergruppe Anonymous auf die Webseiten von VISA, MasterCard und PayPal teil, um gegen die Sperrung der Konten von Wiki-Leaks zu protestieren. Splittergruppen von Anonymous infiltrierten die Netzwerke der totalitären Regime von Libyen und Tunesien. Eine Gruppe namens LulzSec schaffte es sogar, das FBI, die CIA und Sony zu attackieren, bevor sie sich wieder auflöste. Das Anonymous-Kollektiv wurde bekannt durch die charakteristische Guy-Fawkes-Maske, mit der sich die Aktivisten tarnen. Es steht für Spaß-Guerilla und politische Netzaktivisten ohne erkennbare Struktur, die mit Hacking-Attacken gegen die Scientology-Sekte und Internetzensur protestierten. Internetsicherheitsdienste und bald auch die gesamte Welt merkten schnell, dass Anonymous eine Bewegung war, die man sehr ernst nehmen sollte. Doch wer verbirgt sich eigentlich hinter den Masken? Inside Anonymous erzählt erstmalig die Geschichte dreier Mitglieder des harten Kerns: ihren Werdegang und ihre ganz persönliche Motivation, die sie zu überzeugten Hackern machte. Basierend auf vielen exklusiven Interviews bietet das Buch einen einzigartigen und spannenden Einblick in die Köpfe, die hinter der virtuellen Community stehen.

Wie beeinflussen digitale Medien Erkenntnisprozesse? Lässt sich angesichts der Integration von digitalen Medien in den Hochschulalltag von einem digital turn sprechen? Wie können sie genutzt werden, um Lehr- bzw. Lernumgebungen zu schaffen, die kritisch, kreativ und innovativ Wissensgenerierungsprozesse sowie neue Denk- und Handlungsspielräume ermöglichen und unterstützen? Aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven werden in diesem Band auch die Potenziale und Grenzen von Social Media untersucht. Diese werden dabei im Zusammenhang mit der neoliberalen Logik und kommerziellen Dominanz von Unternehmen wie z. B. Google, Microsoft oder Facebook betrachtet. Ebenfalls analysiert werden in diesem Kontext die Protestbewegung der Studierenden an der Universität Wien 2009 und die Interventionen des digital vernetzten Kollektivs Anonymous. Die Untersuchungen verweisen auf die Entwicklung neuer Repräsentations- und Identifikationspraktiken, um Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Demokratie einzufordern.

In this arena, national legal systems and their underlying common values collide. This collection convenes contributions from European, Australian and US experts. They take on the challenge of providing an intercontinental analysis of the issue and answer the question how the right to privacy could be defended in future.

Ameisengesellschaften

Eine Faszinationsgeschichte

Seit der Antike dienen Ameisen und ihre Formen des Zusammenlebens als Modell und Vergleich für den Menschen und seine soziale Organisation. Dabei ist das Bild der Ameisengesellschaft, in denen wir unsere Ordnungen spiegeln, äußerst flexibel und kann als Vorlage sowohl für republikanische wie monarchistische, libertäre oder totalitäre Vorstellungen einer Gemeinschaft verwendet werden. In seiner wissenshistorischen Studie verfolgt Niels Werber die wechselhafte Faszinationsgeschichte dieses Vergleichs und untersucht die Evidenzen und blinden Flecken, die er produziert. Was an Ameisen beobachtet wird, so der Befund, gibt Antworten auf soziologische oder anthropologische Probleme – und stellt jenseits aller Disziplinen die Frage, was der Mensch ist und was die Gesellschaft, in der er lebt.

In January 2012, the hacker collective Anonymous brought down the FBI website in response to planned American laws against internet piracy. In 2011, LulzSec, a sister organisation, broke into and blocked computer systems at VISA, Mastercard and PayPal. The groups have infiltrated the networks of totalitarian governments in Libya and Tunisia. They have attacked the CIA and NATO. But instead of being sanctimonious and secretive, these cyber activists are flippant and taunting, never hesitating to mock those they've outsmarted. Today, governments, big businesses and social activists are waking up to the true power of the internet, and how it can be manipulated. This is the story of a hive mind, with many hackers across the globe connected to slice through security systems and escape untraced. Through the stories of four key members, We Are Anonymous offers a gripping, adrenalin-fuelled narrative drawing upon extensive research, and hundreds of conversations with the hackers themselves. By coming to know them - their backgrounds, families, motivations - we come to know the human side of their virtual exploits, showing exactly why they're so passionate about disrupting the internet's frontiers.

Well-intentioned people, such as Bono and John Lennon, have for years implored us to stop killing each other in much the same manner family members have begged alcoholics to stop drinking.

The 12 Steps have been instrumental in changing the lives of over 3 million alcoholics in over 77 countries, regardless of religious faith. Those who once knew only chaos, pain and suffering have discovered peace, as a result of these Steps. Consider the Steps as a recipe for peace. Should they fail to produce the desire results we will refund your misery and you may return to killing at your leisure.

Anonymous Skeptics

Swinburne, Hick, and Alston

At its deepest, philosophical skepticism questions the sense of language. Skepticism manifests itself in different forms, three of the most powerful being logical, external-world, and religious skepticism. How has philosophy of religion addressed these challenges? The attempt to answer this question leads Lance Ashdown to a consideration of three prominent contemporary philosophers of religion: Richard Swinburne, John Hick, and William Alston. The author shows that these philosophers are indeed open to the criticisms of the three types of skepticism mentioned above. According to Ashdown, they are rightly to be considered as 'anonymous skeptics'. Readers familiar with the work of the theologian Karl Rahner will recognize an echo of his famous doctrine that non-Christian religious believers are really 'anonymous Christians', i.e., Christian believers who do not recognize themselves as such. In a similar way, the philosophers of religion under consideration are skeptics who most certainly would not identify themselves as such. They are anonymous skeptics in the sense that their epistemologies create the very conditions that allow for the severe and, on their own terms, unanswerable challenges of skepticism. At the same time, none of these philosophers thinks that skeptical objections pose a devastating or unanswerable threat to their epistemologies. For example, each of them is an avowed believer in God and is fully aware of the challenge of religious skepticism, yet none believes that skepticism need cause a rational Christian to abandon his or her beliefs. Nevertheless, each of the three philosophers adheres to a philosophical theory that remains open to the devastating critique of Philo in David Hume's essay Dialogue Concerning Natural Religion - who argues at his deepest that talk of God is meaningless.

Becky Chan’s life gets off to a rocky start. She is born into a poor family, with a ne’er-do-well father. But by 1967, she is the reigning queen of the Hong Kong film industry, and her life is frequently confused by her public with the roles that she plays, including the Goddess of Mercy. In the city, Communist factions are setting bombs and kidnapping people. In mainland China, itself in the throes of the Cultural Revolution, rival factions of the Communist Party are terrorizing the nation. In the midst of this turmoil, Becky Chan disappears. Told from the point of view of an aging Canadian expatriate residing in the colony, Becky Chan is an absorbing and intriguing story that is entirely set in the Hong Kong film world. Woven into Becky’s life story, itself the stuff of a Mandarin movie, are the plots of several of her 190 films.
