E679: Internet Harassment & Free Speech: Quinn Norton & Kevin Marks join Jason to debate how trolling, human rights, and anonymity v. transparency play out online and in real life



about this episode

The emergence of social media connecting millions worldwide (& via Facebook, that’s a cool billion) has thrown the problem of online harassment into the forefront of everyday life. What can we do about it? What’s at stake? How does it affect real life, including human rights, freedom of speech, & law enforcement? Does online anonymity enable trolling, or is it irrelevant? What motivates trolls, anyway? Joining Jason today are writers Quinn Norton & Kevin Marks who have examined these questions in-depth and lend their debating skills to this Harassment on the Internet & Free Speech Roundtable.
