Yesterday, Zach Walton and Josh Wolford tag-teamed to follow the activities of Anomymous in real-time as soon as Megaupload went down. Their write-ups hit the Web within minutes of sites going down. As the news rolled out across the rest of the Internet, people took to Twitter to cheer on and spread the news.

    Thank you Mike Tuttle for your information about Pinterest. I hate to tell you this because I found your article informative and articulate. I AM STILL CONFUSED! I am getting the idea about the boards, and pinning, and re-pinning,but, can you explain to me how to get random people to follow me? I only have 10 people following me and that is pathetic! HELP.. Thank you:)

    Ima let you finish….. but Anonymous was fun back in 2007. Now, it’s like get over it, dude. Anyone that wants government to fail with no working plan in place is stupid and does not know how to work with others very well. We can make our demands like normal human beings. Anonymous=Fail. Probably some angry hip crap cornballs from the U.S. after all isn’t megastupid your company?
