So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon RonsonRead about another entry on the list.
Accessible, entertaining, educational and frightening, Jon Ronson takes a look at some of the people whose lives have been torn to pieces by online shaming, examining who has survived this, and why. We have always punished people with shame, he argues, but now we have a new system of justice and a new way of dishing out punishment. This online sentencing is immediate, severe, destructive, irreversible and neverending. And it’s served by us: by me, and by you.
