For Thursday

Just a reminder we are reading “A Man Like Him” from The New Yorker (linked in our syllabus), and educating ourselves about doxxing.  I have an article up from The Daily Beast and another article which is promotional (for a web security firm), but also explains the issue.

What can you find about trolls, online harassment, doxxing, and the dark side of the internet?

Check out the blogs our our sparkers:

See you tomorrow!
