Host Joseph Pace and guests discuss how trolling and “doxing” or, posting someone’s personal information online, are increasingly being used as weapons to intimidate and harass.

How do we balance freedom of speech with personal security and online protections?  What recourse does a victim of cyber harassment have?  And, how can you protect yourself from these attacks?


- Nellie Bowles, reporter for the New York Times covering Silicon Valley and internet culture.

- Michelle Ferrier, founder and creator of Troll-Busters.com, a website supporting women journalists, bloggers and publishers who are targets of cyber harassment.
