And then it puts those hacktivist personas in a slightly better light than the average authorities have put them. All in context, of course, in light of the recent cyberattacks and DDoS attacks by "Anonymous."
I updated the Glossary to include the differences and definitions on "cyberpunk" and "cypherpunk" because they are, indeed, very different - even if the words look similar and sound very similar.
Now what Blake has gone and done is display Son of Gomez's "[...] THE ENTIRE FIRST ONLINE MANIFESTO [...]" of the CYPHERpunks which is outlined as follows:
The True Story of the Internet (parts I, II, and III)
- Book 1: The Xenix Chainsaw Massacre
- Book 2: WebWorld or The Mythical Circle of Eunichs
- Book 3: InfoWar or The Final Frontier
Book 3 is unfinished because the author was arrested (1997) before he could finish it...
Okay, so I have to go finish reading the Son of Gomez works, to tell you the honest truth. I'm still playing catch-up but thought I'd better review Blake's post...I'll be back to post later on a review of the Son of Gomez material but I have to say... "YES!" I'm glad Blake posted in exactly this way 'cos I was fixing to track these documents down based on the past couple of 800 DAYS posts! *whew* Now I don't have to search very far...
