+ - Interview: "Face" of Anonymous Quits->

Submitted by

CWmike writes "Barrett Brown, an author and writer for Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post, and True/Slant, has been a media-friendly public face for the group Anonymous. But Brown is quitting Anonymous and turning his focus to his brainchild Project PM, which has multifaceted goals, including 'to best utilize information technology along with our collective knowledge base to better the world in every aspect possible.' Last year Brown went from a journalist reporting on Anonymous's activities to being an informal spokesperson for the group. He gave interviews and wrote press releases, but maintained that he was not a leader as the group Anonymous was leaderless. Yet there were other members of Anonymous who accused Brown of giving too much attention to the group and of hogging the spotlight. There was also talk of Anonymous members being worried about having their identities exposed, worried about Brown's focus on government wrongdoing. Upon learning that Brown was quitting Anonymous, 'Security is Sexy' blogger Darlene Storm interviewed him upcoming projects and reports he has planned stemming from HBGary e-mails."
