Barrett Brown, who until recently identified himself as an unofficial spokesman for Anonymous, has an op-ed in the Guardian today wherein he details the findings from an investigation he’s been working on for the past few months. Headline: “A Sinister Cyber-Surveillance Scheme Exposed: Hacked emails from security contractor HBGary reveal a disturbing public-private partnership to spy on web users.” You can learn more about what Brown has found on this wiki.
It all looks to me like a first step. Brown’s on to something, for sure. But as I told him, it seems to me like he’s trying to describe an animal by looking at its shadow. To see the beast, someone will need to shine a light on it. A whistle-blower will need to step forward.
