Re: <nettime> artfcity: Turbulence.org Going Offline.

My limited exposure to Anonymouth was in 2013 - presentation, brief contact with Rachel Greenstadt, look at the published code, and few experiments. The conclusion was that stylometry works and it is very hard, if not impossible, to counter it without help of machines. Style goes deep. As a trivial example, see the below nonsense and try to guess from which nettime contributor's output was it synthesized.

It is obviously true that anonymity implies conformity, and may have long term conforming effects. Even 'going to a crowded public place' carries some conformity with it - one gets to be exposed to people one may not really want to be influenced by, but will, for the sake of anonymity. Using Tor also enforces conformity: going through the moves to install, work around blocks, etc. There is more diversity in the e-mail providers than in the anonymity providers, where the only option is controlled and influenced by a grand total of 4-5 people. I don't think that stylometry counter-measures are any more sinister than these. It's just a technique, like using public WiFi in a cafe, to position oneself in the crowd, a way of How Not to be Seen(tm).

The deeper question is: is easy availability of anonymizing technology serving as a neutering agent, providing safe (and ineffective) harbor, so no one has to risk the Blow on the Head, and changing the nature of the discourse for the worse? Probably yes. It's unclear if there are positive long term effects of the easily available anonymity. Which may explain sources of Tor funding.

It came to increasingly reflect this kind of infrastructure building

Like too.  For the Kunstlerhaus in response to build the things I am
