Tonight’s guest on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart is the London Bureau Chief for Forbes magazine, and she wrote a book about Anonymous. Apparently, she’s been working on it with key members of the organization, and she really does seem to be quite in the know.

In fact, 4chan has been mentioned by name, as has the term “Troll Bait.”

I’ll try to get a video up ASAP. It’s not really anything we don’t already know, but it’s interesting to see the organization in the light of the mainstream for a moment.

She said something about posters on 4chan being forced to be anonymous? Is this true or did she misspeak?

Here it is

The embed code for that thing was really messy, so I’ll just link it.

She meant that the majority of the posters don’t want to give out personal information and choose a name, forcing them to post anonymously.
