Angry Internet Mob

I've briefly discussed the Web group Anonymous before, but for more insight regarding the power of the Internet, read Gawker's article about /b/'s campaign to take down "singer" Dahvie Vanity.

Gawker provides some background on 4chan, /b/, and the current campaign slash scandal in addition to some great insight for those uninformed on how this group operates.
