Our contributors represent a distinguished array of philosophers, ethicists, feminists, cognitive scientists, lawyers, cryptographers, engineers, policy analysts, government policy makers, privacy experts, business leaders, blue chip companies, and successful start-ups. Our research partners include institutions in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

ABOUT THE CATEGORIES
The might of many-to-many: you and I networking change
This category is about people using the digital environment to connect with other people, be it through advocacy, activism, online communities, e-mail, etc. Think of this as spring board to discussions, links, websites, and ideas on what surrounds interpersonal online activity and communication. Items grouped under this category are focus on the activities and interactions rather than the applications and technologies. However, they too can be discussed here.
This category is also about undoing, challenging and re-examining the existing paths of development, regulation, legislation and business practices that impede or hinder online anonymity.
