Lessons from Anonymous Message Boards and how to build your own anonymous community board

Zoom Room 4A
I’ll give a 15 min overview of anonymous message boards and how they helped shape the internet. I’ll also discuss the downsides of anonymous message boards and why they can be scary. Then I’ll use Ostrom Principles to discuss how we can think of privacy as a public good and use it as an asset (not a liability) for strong, healthy communities. Lastly, together as a group, we will set up our own completely anonymous, decentralized and permanent message board to put our theories into action. This session is good for anyone who has ever surfed Reddit, PostSecret or other community message boards.
