How does anonymity enable free speech--and how is it a threat? "I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away," famously said by Randi Zuckerberg (sister of Mark), has become the policy for some, while the Stop Online Piracy Act mobilized millions to write Congress in protest. Timely and thoroughly researched, Hacking the Future is a comprehensive look at how anonymity influences politics, activism, religion, and art. Stryker presents a strong philosophical defense of anonymity and explores some of the tools and organizations relating to this important issue.
