The loosely affiliated and ever-changing band of individuals who call themselves Anonymous have been variously described as hackers, hacktivists, free-expression zealots, Internet troublemakers, and assorted combinations thereof. By all accounts the group has no clear hierarchy or leadership, or even any internal agreement about what exactly it is.

Hacktivism, Vigilantism and Collective Action in a Digital Age Radical online activism is a new public policy challenge, with groups such as Anonymous being described as everything from terrorist organizations to freedom fighters. With activities ranging from attacking government websites to revealing private information about targeted organizations, these groups have commanded the public’s attention with often-subversive cyberactivism. Policymakers and technology experts are working in particular to understand Anonymous’s origins and motives—and how it functions with no leaders, hierarchy or structure—in order to develop appropriate policy responses to this new type of online collective action. On December 9, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a discussion exploring the impact of "hacktivism" and vigilantism in a digital age.

Anonymous: From the Lulz to Collective Action | The New Everyday Taken as a whole, Anonymous resists straightforward definition as it is a name currently called into being to coordinate a range of disconnected actions, from trolling to political protests. Originally a name used to coordinate Internet pranks, in the winter of 2008 some wings of Anonymous also became political, focusing on protesting the abuses of the Church of Scientology. By September 2010 another distinct political arm emerged as Operation Payback and did so to protest the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and a few months later this arm shifted its energies to Wikileaks, as did much of the world's attention. It was this manifestation of Anonymous that garnered substantial media coverage due the spectacular waves of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks they launched (against PayPal and Mastercard in support of Wikileaks).

Inside Anonymous' Secret War Room
Pris dans son ensemble, le concept d’Anonymous désigne une réalité vaste et complexe ; ce nom prend actuellement tout son sens dans un monde dans lequel son rôle est de coordonner une série d’initiatives décousues, lesquelles vont du trolling aux revendications politiques.
