Hacking Rhetoric

Artist’s Statement

My original hacking summary was based on the 2011 Live Anonymous hack of the Westboro Baptist Church.  What I found so interesting about it was not how quickly a member of Anonymous hacked one of Westboro’s websites but why he did it.  Instead of hacking for a greater good as Anonymous typically claims itself to do, this hack seemed petty in nature because the hactivist was losing his patience with the Westboro representative.

So what I decided to do was copy Josh’s project, because it’s much better than mine.

Here is a link to Josh’s project:
