The text of Underminers is interspersed with essays by various people that I think have important things to say about the subjects in hand, so what happens when you want an essay written by a loose collective of people who are having an impact on the world far beyond their numbers and in a way that is changing the way activism works entirely.
You ask nicely.
Which is what I have done in the realms of Anonymous, and ended up with something that reads like a normal essay – albeit about an extraordinary thing – yet was actually written by about ten different people, none of whom I know anything about nor wish to do so. Anyone who thinks that Anonymous is just a bunch of haxtors and script-kiddies will get a shock when they see how good the text is: these are people who take things seriously, yet with a hefty splash of lulz thrown in.
The hive mind has spoken, and it has spoken well.
