Barrett Brown, imprisoned for federal charges relating to the 2011 Stratfor hack, still sits in his cell while waiting for his 63-month sentence to end. The most controversial of charges against Barrett Brown, linked to hacked data, were dropped during the course of trial.
Before the sentencing, Brown was an active participant with Anonymous, helping to support the #OpTunisia amongst other operations. The U.S. journalist and founder of Project PM aimed to develop a new way of collaborating information online and to “improve the information flow on the internet.” Project PM eventually became an extension of the Tunisia operations.
During his time as an investigative journalist, Brown became increasingly interested in the “cyber-industrial-complex,” with Project PM becoming the machine to sift through the intelligence received.
Now imprisoned, Brown still actively writes and expressed his opinion on all matters concerning him. Currently listed as a staff member of The Intercept, Barrett Brown continues to engage in his audience with his satirical thoughts.
