Gabriella Coleman, Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy at McGill, redefines the limited dual perspectives (bold guardians of freedom vs. internet terrorists) that are generally used to describe the online hacktivist group Anonymous in an article published today by Al Jazeera English.

Read her opinion piece, Everything you know about Anonymous is wrong, to learn why the representations of the famous virtual group are commonly misconceived, and where citizen concern should in fact lie: the rise of the surveillance state.
