@doug_gross Reports: Anonymous members speak out at surreal SXSW panel


We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists 
was preimered at South by Southwest (SXSW) an annual music, film and interactive conference in Austin, Texas. The director, @knappb appeared on a panel there with members of Anonymous.

Doug Gross, a CNN correspondant reports:

“The masks, patterned after the one worn by the shadowy anti-hero from the comic book and movie “V for Vendetta,” gave an almost surreal air to the panel at a conference where black-framed glasses are a more common fashion accessory.

As a crowd of about 200 watched, “Anonymous 9000” spoke on a big screen, his mask and white gloves lending theatrics even as he talked soberly about the inner workings of a movement that has alternately inspired, intimidated and baffled the Web.

“I was kind of mesmerized by what was going on,” said Brian Knappenberger, who directed “We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists.” “This is an attempt to define that culture.”
