First Row Sports got cut off. The most reliable site for sports streams (even though it had bad quality it was the dependable site for streams).

This is how it begins. Shut down one at a time and the next thing you know Youtube's gone.

wasn't sure where to post this, but this is probably as good a place as any. great article about anonymous from the globe and mail by john blanchard. i suggest reading the whole thing:

How I learned to stop worrying and love Anonymous - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
I am 25 year veteran of the Internet as a profitable concern and today, I would like to add my voice in support of #Anonymous.

This is a strange and perhaps career-limiting admission to make. But I no longer believe Anonymous is some gang of cyber terrorists, nor is it a Mafia-like criminal organization or a pack of cowards hiding in their parents’ basement. Those who publicly claim otherwise are, in my opinion, being alarmist and intellectually lazy to the point of negligence or duplicity.
Quote:
There are divergences within this coalition of ideologies, but I can agree with one basic tenet of the movement: It posits that, as worldwide connectivity tops 2 billion, the Internet has evolved into something new and greater than the sum of its parts, with rights, rules, obligations and a culture unique unto itself.

It also believes action is needed to defend those rights.

Last month – eSentire's Travis Barlow invited me to host a session at the Atlantic Security Conference regarding Anonymous and its implications for both the security community and small business.

I stood up in front of 200 of my peers, some of the finest security minds this country has to offer, and suggested to them this so-called hacktivist fringe has the power to be a force for great good.
Quote:
I can think of one monstrous example that overwhelmingly argues that thinking people everywhere need to try to listen to Anonymous (even if you can not participate in or support its actions): The death of a 26-year-old Syrian dad named Rami Ahmad al-Sayeed.

On Feb 21, 2012 Mr. al-Sayeed was killed in a mortar attack as the Assad forces shelled BabaAmr.

Mr. al-Sayeed spent the last eight months of his remarkable life bypassing Syrian Internet censorship – with the direct technical assistance of a lot of so-called “Anonymous Cyber Terrorists” here and abroad – in order to upload video to YouTube as the shells rained down around him in Homs.

He, and Anonymous, were making sure the world could see how it ends when governments no longer serve or protect the people they govern.

His final post makes for a chilling epitaph: “I expect this will be my last message and no one will forgive you who talked but didn't act.”

I fully believe that the "powers that be" have realized that the power of the internet is too strong for them to control.

They have hit the point where they've realized they have to "stop it" before it overthrows their ability to reign it (and in turn the users/citizens) in.

Using the internet is the closest thing we have to a true democracy and equal rights. Unfortunately there are small powerful groups that don't like the sound of that.

while i agree with most of your post, there are significant impediments to the internet actually being democratic, one of which is teh access to technology and education to use it. there are large segments of our population (in canada and especially globally) that are completely shut out of the internet. the only real democracy we have is citizenship engagement, aprticularly people in the streets.

I agree with you that there are impediments to it being actually used in conjunction with a political system (I'm sure you had more for your list and I do as well).

That is the road I believe we are taking with the internet. Things like twitter, which I despise, has been used to organize people on the streets for many different protests and rallies etc.

While I do agree people need to get out on the streets, the question becomes as we progress forwards is "where are those streets?" (ie. real world or virtual world)

I think we are progressing towards a more virtual world and that is why there is a big push now to get control before a revolution starts on the virtual world that actually has the power to change the real world in a big way.
