This Thursday March 7th on SuicideGirls Radio our show will explore the world of online activism, and the legal issues computer-based activists are facing. Hosts Nicole Powers and Moxi Suicide will be joined in studio by @Brian Knappenberger (@KnappB), the director of the documentary We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists. Infamous online personality and cyber security expert Andrew Auernheimer (@rabite) a.k.a. Weev, will also be joining us via Skype from an East Coast location permitted under his bail conditions. Auernheimer is awaiting sentencing on March 18 having been convicted of embarrassing a publicly listed corporation by a judge and jury that were painfully unaware of how the internet works [for real]. As such, Auernheimer is just one of many victims of the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a piece of legislation so ancient it predates the hyperlinked internet as we know it and so absurd it’d be laughable were it not for the fact that good people are languishing in jail because of it. A malicious prosecution/persecution under the auspices of the CFAA is also credited with being a contributing factor in the death of digital activist and Demand Progress founder Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide earlier this year.
