The case for anonymity online

4chan founder Christopher Poole (aka moot) talks about the rise the internet’s most famous message board and why privacy is important. Would love to see a debate between moot and Zuckerberg.

P.S. – Sorry I haven’t been updating the blog as frequently as I used to. 99% of the things I used to put up here I now just put up on twitter, so you can always follow me there.

    With the fight for privacy on the internet it always mekes me wonder why people forget about privacy on social network sites and fill in mobile numbers, addresses and even where they are.
