Tracking the birth and life of Anonymous, anthropologist and academic Gabriella Coleman set out to explain the mysterious group in her talk at TEDGlobal. The answer was less than comprehensive, but given the nature of the beast, that’s not particularly surprising. She came up with four ways to describe the group’s makeup:
Anonymous scales and is participatory; it is not just hackers. 
Anonymous may seem chaotic, but most targets are not random. 
They put on a good performance, obvious even to their detractors. 
They are visible and invisible. 
Read the full post here. For bonus points, read also Quinn Norton’s excellent Wired piece, How Anonymous Picks Targets, Launches Attacks, and Takes Powerful Organizations Down, which covers much of the same ground but in rather more detail than Coleman could include in a TEDTalk (or, for that matter, than I could capture in a live blog.)

*Good luck pinning these guys/gals down. They represent the best and worst the internet has to offer. That’s why I support them.

Kathryn Schulz’s TED Talk on REGRET

In it, Schulz beautifully articulates the importance of regret. Far from being something we should discard, regret is perhaps something we should embrace because it can help make us who we are.

I was unexpectedly moved by this talk. I hope it helps you too.

Bryan Stevenson on injustice and the hard but necessary truths about the justice system.

via explore-blog

*Always good to look at the major flaws built into our “justice system”. We have far too many people locked up. Thousands and thousands of people in jail for possession or sale of drugs. Ridiculous.

Battling Bad Science: Ben Goldacre

Every day there are news reports of new health advice, but how can you know if they’re right? Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2011, July 2011, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Duration: 14:20.)

“Most of us have tunnel vision and we’re focussed on that. We’re told that that’s what you have to do to be successful—focus, dig deep, all that sort of stuff, to the extent that many people have lost the context of their work, and the fact that knowledge is connected.”

Fantastic interview with TED curator Chris Anderson on Dumbo Feather, an Australian magazine about the extraordinary people behind extraordinary ideas, touching on the role of networked knowledge in creativity and innovation. (via curiositycounts)
