Fogcon panel notes: The Lightning Wrath of the Internet

On the "better late than never" principle, these are rather sloppily formatted notes on an excellent Fogcon panel I attended.

The Lightning Wrath of the Internet


From Cooks Source to RaceFail, the Internet “hivemind” gets angry very, very quickly. The speed of discussion in fandom is much faster than it ever has been before. How is this changing the conversations we have? Is it a good thing, a bad thing, or simply the way it is?
