Here is the ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists that operates under the non-name Anonymous, by the writer the Huffington Post says "knows all of [Anonymous's] deepest, darkest secrets." Half a dozen years ago, anthropologist Gabriella Coleman set out to study the rise of this global phenomenon just as some of its members were turning to political protest and dangerous disruption. She ended up becoming so closely connected to Anonymous that the tricky story of her inside-outside status as Anon confidante, interpreter, and erstwhile mouthpiece forms one of the themes of this witty and entirely engrossing book. The narrative brims with details unearthed from within a notoriously mysterious subculture, whose semi-legendary tricksters - such as Topiary, tflow, Anachaos, and Sabu - emerge as complex, diverse, politically and culturally sophisticated people. Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little-understood facets of culture in the Internet age. 1.

This is a nonfiction story about the subculture that formed around the marijuana industry in Northern California. It documents a unique time and place in American history that is today impacting society on a global scale. It is a personal narrative that tells the story of one young man's experiences over nearly a decade in the rapidly changing cannabis industry; embedded within the story lies an exploration of a budding young culture with new values and new ideas. Through unusual events and unusual characters, the story paints a picture of the lifestyle and the conflicts generated from the black market industry. This is an important document about the influence that the events in Northern California and Southern Oregon are having on American society, politics, and future generations, and indeed the rest of the world. It is a lighthearted narrative, built with amusing anecdotes of a life around marijuana, but its intention and motive are quite serious. The story is acknowledging a movement. There is far more happening in the remote valleys of the California wilderness than just a few renegades hoping for easy money. Away from the eyes of the parent society, hundreds of thousands of disenchanted youth have gathered to protest through practice and to generate the foundation for an alternative existence.As the debate over the legality of marijuana continues to inspire passion around the country, this audiobook takes a deeper look at what it means and seeks another perspective on what the cannabis industry has already done. And it asks the question: What is gained? What is lost? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael A T Clark. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/145702/bk_acx0_145702_sample.mp3.

Slow Movement

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Slow Movement began with a protest against the opening of a McDonald's restaurant in Piazza di Spagna, Rome that sparked the creation of the Slow Food organization. Over time, this developed into a subculture in other areas, such as Slow Travel, Slow Shopping, and Slow Design. Geir Berthelsen and his creation of The World Institute of Slowness presented a vision in 1999 for an entire 'Slow Planet' and a need to teach the world the way of Slow. Professor Guttorm Fløistad summarizes the philosophy, stating: The only thing for certain is that everything changes. The rate of change increases. If you want to hang on you better speed up. That is the message of today. It could however be useful to remind everyone that our basic needs never change. The need to be seen and appreciated! It is the need to belong. The need for nearness and care, and for a little love! This is given only through slowness in human relations. In order to master changes, we have to recover slowness, reflection and togetherness. There we will find real renewal.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Didactics - English - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, Saarland University, language: English, abstract: Created to express cultural and sexual identity of minorities within the gay community, Voguing also served as a tool to reveal and protest heteronormative patriarchy and homophobia, white privilege and thereby the closely linked ideologies of racism and classism. Notably, racism and classism also posed to be considerable factors in the exclusion of African-American and Latin-American homosexual individuals within the mainstream white gay community. Societal anxiety of the then emerging HIV/AIDS crisis and the conservative government under Ronald Reagan, posed to be what Mazzone and Peressini call a threat of "potential and complete exclusion" of African-American and Latin-American citizens from the gay community, American society at large and often even their own families. The broad societal exclusion led to the blossoming of a subculture with its own rules and structures. The analyses of the Voguing roots aims at disclosing the intersections of oppression factors for gay Vogue dancers of colour and further strives to unveil Voguing as a form of subcultural protest against norms established by white patriarchy. Jennie Livingston's documentary on the 1980s gay ballroom scene in New York serves as a tool to emphasise the unique position of gay outcasts of colour and allows an inspection of the structure and meaning of the ballroom scene with its houses and their organisation as post-modern families. As it is a pivotal aspect of the scene and its power to question traditional family and moral values rooted in religion, leading to heterosexist suppression and condemnation of homosexuals and all gender non-conformists, the documentary and the organisation of the ballroom scene will be analysed. In this context, the first mainstream release of the artist Malcolm McLaren in the late 1980s presenting, and the role of Madonna in the promotion of Voguing in mainstream popular culture in the early 1990s will be discussed. It is argued that Madonna's work and collaboration with dancers from the Voguing underground scene had the vigour to be an instrument to bring gay issues into the centre of discussion.
