Hate me, but after listening to beaucoup pitches from digital security industry vendors lately -- including one today -- it seems feasible that Anonymous is a marketing front for the digital security and intelligence industries, not to mention every government intelligence agency that's justifying its funding. If I hear one more sales guy or gal cite "Anonymous hacktivists" as the reason to "buy our software" (and I hear that constantly), I'm gonna ... I dunno. The Anonymous brand is far more valuable to Palantir, i2, Berico, and scores of similar companies as a sales tool than any actual damage Anonymous has done that I know about. So, seriously: Is Anonymous an industry sales op? And if not, where are my stock dividends?
