An exploration of the Dark Web—websites accessible only with special routing software—that examines the history of three anonymizing networks, Freenet, Tor, and I2P. The term “Dark Web” conjures up drug markets, unregulated gun sales, stolen credit cards. But, as Robert Gehl points out in Weaving the Dark Web, for each of these illegitimate uses, there are other, legitimate ones: the New York Times's anonymous whistleblowing system, for example, and the use of encryption by political dissidents. Defining the Dark Web straightforwardly as websites that can be accessed only with special routing software, and noting the frequent use of “legitimate” and its variations by users, journalists, and law enforcement to describe Dark Web practices (judging them “legit” or “sh!t”), Gehl uses the concept of legitimacy as a window into the Dark Web. He does so by examining the history of three Dark Web systems: Freenet, Tor, and I2P. Gehl presents three distinct meanings of legitimate: legitimate force, or the state's claim to a monopoly on violence; organizational propriety; and authenticity. He explores how Freenet, Tor, and I2P grappled with these different meanings, and then discusses each form of legitimacy in detail by examining Dark Web markets, search engines, and social networking sites. Finally, taking a broader view of the Dark Web, Gehl argues for the value of anonymous political speech in a time of ubiquitous surveillance. If we shut down the Dark Web, he argues, we lose a valuable channel for dissent.

Discussions of the dark web often have sinister connotations, as its capacity to enable various crimes is the aspect that most people fixate upon. However, there is nothing fundamentally criminal about the dark web. It is simply an encrypted part of the internet that allows users to remain anonymous. Nonetheless, a considerable amount of illegal activity does occur on it, making the questions of how it can be monitored and the extent to which it should be pressing issues. This volume explores the various issues related to the dark web, giving readers a better understanding of this enigmatic topic.

This volume introduces the reader to the wide range of methods that digital humanities employ, and offers a practical guide to the study, interpretation, and presentation of cultural material and practices. In this instance, the editors consider digital humanities to include both the use of computing to understand cultural material in new ways, and the application of theories and methods from the humanities to interpret new technologies. Each chapter provides a step-by-step guide to cutting-edge methodologies so that students can make informed decisions about the methods they use, consider ethical practices, follow practical procedures, and present their work effectively. Readers will develop practical and reflexive understandings of the software and digital devices that they study and use for research, and the book will help new researchers collaborate and contribute to their scholarly communities, and to public discourse. As contemporary humanities work becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, and increasingly permeated by and with digital technologies, this volume helps new researchers navigate an evolving academic environment. Humanities and social sciences students will find this textbook an invaluable resource for assessing and creating digital projects.

Weaving the Web directs our attention to those creatures that at the time of creation came through from darkness, not from light. Why are these Dark Ones so important to the human race? It is because of the control and influence they have so insidiously woven like a web around humans They treat you like slaves, but their real objective is much worse than that. It has taken them hundreds of thousands of years to get to this level of control and for you to evolve spiritually this manipulation must be stopped. The only way such influence can be broken is for people to firstly understand what is happening to them; then to decide individually whether they are prepared to accept this kind of treatment or not and to work out what if anything they should do about it. If you feel that your life is not under your control as it should be and you wish to correct this then this book will help with your searching for the truth and also provide some of the answers.
