Interesting presentation of DDOSing as an online collective action. Is it ethical? Activism? What are important aspects of user interface which allows participation?
Crowdsourcing definitely has some issues we are not talking about enough. They are workers as any other workers. They are precarious as many others today. Who is thinking about their rights, worker rights? Who is making sure that they are payed and are not working in sweatshops or even slavery conditions? We really do need a 21st century concept of worker unions, for globalized and precarious world. All crowdsourcing workers, unite!
