The rise of the hacktivist [Infographic]
There is a really good post over at SiliconAngle by Mellisa Tolentino about the rise of hacktivism as a valid way to protest or promote political idealism using computers and computer networks.
Along with the post they also a really good infographic that they had put together to show the timeline of the period when hacktivism first became a term and today. While I really recommend that you check out Mellisa’s post I thought I would at least post the infographic for you to peruse.
I should note as well that I am a really strong supporter of ‘responsible’ hacktivism as it is increasingly becoming the only way to hove our voices heard in a society were the government is trying to do everything it can to muzzle the Web and stifle our rights.
