I want to join Anonymous. I don’t mean anonymous as in women who’ve reached the disappearing age of 45+.
I mean Anonymous, the technology hackers to whom the media collectively refer to as “subversive”.
Imagine being a subversive like Julian Assange (who is, of course, no longer anonymous) with a collection of technology tricks to expose corporations, governments and banking corruption.
How wonderful to hack into mainframes and disrupt the work of environmental and social polluters.
No-one would know it was me because I’d be anonymous.
Which makes Anonymous a group of genuine, risk-taking citizen activists who act for the greater good and not for fame or glory: a bunch of superhero technology gurus masking their deeds by clever internet use.
However, if I avoid capture I shall remain anonymous.
I’m already halfway there.
