It’s Easter holiday and time to relax. The telly is mostly  full of boring shows and there’s no new episodes of the series I follow. Sigh. Thank God for YouTube and Chromecast. Here’s a few documentaries I’ve seen this week.

People & Power – Syria’s Electronic Armies

By happenstance I managed to catch this excellent documentary on Syria’s Electronic Armies on the telly last night. What really baffled me was that during the kerfuffle the government suddenly began to spend money on IT infrastructure and greater Internet access – all just to uncover those who opposed the Assad regime. This documentary also features a segment on Dark Comet.


Who is Anonymous? – The Origin – Full Hacktivist Documentary

Sure. I know. The whole Anonymous thing is a bit dated. Nevertheless, this is a great documentary on the origins of Anonymous.

2600 Films: Freedom Downtime

The producers behind this documentary from 2001 is the 2600: The Hacker Quarterlyan American publication that specializes in publishing technical information on a variety of subjects including hacking, telephone switching systems, Internet protocols and services, as well as general news concerning the computer “underground“The documentary centers on the fate of Kevin Mitnick. Oh my – this is a vintage one!
