22. There may be more to Anonymous than its public face

A couple of weeks ago, I saw an interesting comment online by someone who has been loosely associated with Anonymous. He pointed out that the people who have been arrested for hacking or DDOS attacks are all pretty young -- mostly late teens and early 20's.

But there are several generations of hackers before them. People from the early days of the Internet in the 1990s, and even people from the old bulletin board days before that in the 1980s. You don't hear anything about them -- but this person was strongly implying (without quite saying so outright) -- that they do exist, that they have skills honed over 20 or 30 years, and that they have been working quietly behind the scenes.

I have no idea if that's true, but if it is, it raises a host of possibilities.
