The Future of Free Speech, Trolls, Anonymity and Fake News Online | Pew Research Center
"Many experts fear uncivil and manipulative behaviors on the internet will persist – and may get worse. This will lead to a splintering of social media into AI-patrolled and regulated ‘safe spaces’ separated from free-for-all zones. Some worry this will hurt the open exchange of ideas and compromise privacy"

The Future Of The Culture Wars Is Here, And It's Gamergate
"What we have in Gamergate is a glimpse of how these skirmishes will unfold in the future—all the rhetorical weaponry and siegecraft of an internet comment section brought to bear on our culture, not just at the fringes but at the center. What we're seeing now is a rehearsal, where the mechanisms of a toxic and inhumane politics are being tested and improved. Tomorrow's Lee Atwater will work through sock puppets on IRC. Tomorrow's Sister Souljah will get shouted down with rape threats. Tomorrow's Tipper Gore will make an inexplicably popular YouTube video. Tomorrow's Willie Horton ad will be an image macro, tomorrow's Borking a doxing, tomorrow's Moral Majority a loose coalition of DoSers and robo-petitioners and scat-GIF trolls—all of them working feverishly in service of the old idea that nothing should ever really change."

Truth, Lies, and 'Doxxing': The Real Moral of the Gawker/Reddit Story | Wired Opinion | Wired.com
"This raises serious moral and ethical concerns: In a networked society, who among us gets to decide where the moral boundaries lie? This isn’t an easy question and it’s at the root of how we, as a society, conceptualize justice. Governance and the construction of a society is not a fact of life; it’s a public project that we must continuously make and remake. Networked technologies are going to increasingly put pressure on our regulatory structures as conflicting social values crash into one another. In order to benefit from innovation, we must also suffer the destabilizing aspects of new technology."

question of the day: How do we tame the excesses of fanboy culture? | MaryAnn Johanson's FlickFilosopher.com
Because, seriously, the fan-damentalism of some of these people is in serious need of major reform. I just don’t know how we go about making it happen. Do you?

How do we tame the excesses of fanboy culture?

These people appear to have no shame, so I doubt we can shame them into behaving better. So what do we do?

Critiquing Khan Academy: Teacher Theater and the Power of Satire
"I think MTT2K, the Mystery Science Theater 3000-style video campaign satirizing Khan Academy, is one of the most interesting developments in education technology so far this year. Many educators have tried voicing their concerns about Khan Academy for several years now, but these have been largely ignored or dismissed by the media, politicians, and the YouTube-viewing public who continue to gush – often quite uncritically – over Khan Academy’s collection of free educational videos."
