Organization  is  globally  distributed  with  initiatives  and  operations  started  by   individual  groups.    People  lend  a  hand  where  they  have  capabilities  and  leaders   seem  to  be  both  naturally  selected  as  well  as  being  historically  connected  with  the   organization.    The  most  prominent  leaders  appear  to  be  old  school,  made  apparent   by  making  historical  references  pre  wikileaks.    There  is  also  a  group  that  is   represented  in  FB  that  has  an  equally  tight  coupling.    One  of  the  goals  is  to  tie  as   many  of  the  IRC  Nicks  to  FB  profiles  as  possible.     IRC  is  the  main  method  of  operational  communication.    It  is  through  IRC  that  most   people  that  participate  in  DDOS  get  their  commands.    Those  commands  are   communicated  through  twitter  and  FB  accounts  as  well.    FB  and  twitter  accounts  are   used  to  communicate  details  and  propaganda  of  the  operation.    There  are  a  group  of   people  who  are  skilled  in  graphic  design  and  video/audio  creation  that  help  with   production.     The  group  focuses  anonymity  on  hiding  IPs  and  hostnames.    While  there  are  some   references  that  are  made  to  not  providing  personal  details  in  IRC.    Some  of  the   apparent  leaders  that  have  FB  accounts  also  are  conscious  to  how  much  information   the  release,  even  amongst  friends.    Some  hide  their  friends  list  to  even  friends.     Anonymous  came  into  notoriety  in  2008  with  Operation  Chanology,  an  attack   against  the  church  of  Scientology.    Since  then  there  are  many  attacks  that  hav  been   attributed  to  the  group.    Their  activities  were  first  noted  in  2006  and  2007  in   opposition  to  some  policies  on  the  social  networking  site

Some  thoughts  for  analysis.   IRC/Forums/Blogs  combined  with  Facebook  and  Twitter  is  great.   Can  you  correlate  times  of  posts?    IRC  they  talk  specifically  about  being  in  attacks.   Can  u  correlate  enough  the  time  they  are  in  IRC  and  the  time  they  are  online  in  FB?     At  what  point  in  an  event  was  a  friendship  made,  before  or  after?     To  Figure  more  out  about  the  person  you  need  to  go  pre-­‐event.     If  you  friend  enough  people  you  might  be  able  to  correlate  people  logging  into  chat   with  people  logging  in  to  Facebook.     As  I  get  more  friends  there  is  more  I  can  tell  about  the  group  quickly.    If  I  have  only   one  mutual  friend  with  a  person  and  the  friend  is  an  alias,  then  maybe  the  person  is   the  alias.     LOIC,  hping,  slowloris,  slowest,  or  even  ping  them  from  the  command  prompt.
