Owen, thanks for that talk we had when I was looking death in the face over my custody battle. You encouraged me to learn more and never give up asking questions no matter how people responded to me. Because of you, I have made it further than I ever expected, RIP brother, you will be missed! - Stu

-d.o.c.-, the savior of us all. One way or the other. In mindset, attitude, ideology and most importantly, in manor... doc was a true an0n. Back before mitnick sold out, red boxing was cool and while google was still on a table in the garage, I was still nestled in daddies ball sack. I was born soon enough though, just in time to experience the crash in the 80's and grew up poor as all hell. Lucky for me an Uncle was going to a tiny community college and he lived so close he was able to study at grandmas in his room. Needless to say, little ol me was curious to see what uncle was doing upstairs. Turns out he was playing some karate game on the tv, while typing homework and fidgeting with a stick box button. When he asked me if I wanted to know how to change the colors (shades-b/w) of the figures on the screen, I was skeptical but I watched. It was the coolest thing in the whole friggin' world to me. Since the whole family had to scratch money together to get him through the cost of college books, he was happy to regurgitate everything he learned that day for the sake of memory refresh. It came easy while I was young and I practically graduated with my uncle from college with a bachelors, yet I was just 12 years old. Moving on from that point, my mind hungered for knowledge of the digital realm. It was missed and of course, school bored me and my grades took a hit since I didnt have any motivation to complete the provided 'establishment' education. *ihatenuns. Now the only science I consumed was from an 8th grade class level writer, a failed individual that can do nothing but tell kids what is correct and what not. I failed in math and many other subjects, they tried to flunk me. Got testing and ended up skipping a grade, for the first time have I tasted the sweet sweet nectar of proving that the system doesnt work. In a way, I manipulated my own progrm. Knowing the secret of getting through school quickly, be lazy- wait until fail- get testing and skip grade, I knew I had an eye for patterns. Once I got into it, I was hacking my whole life. I graduated from 'high' school when I was 15. I had all the testing done and everyone said I am a genius but the problem is that my family didnt have the funds to send me to the schools these people suggested I needed. Doomed from the start, IF you follow the system and allow them to lead you. Here I chose to do what I could do as a 15 year old shitty public school graduate. Not a god damn thing besides getting high (pep, cocarettes, speed, pot, lsd, shrooms and spinning vinyl at local clubs w parental permission.) and hacking ALL the things. Sometimes hacking them together with others during times when nothing was automated.. A hop meant: run to the next phone booth (or port, infrared beam etc), strap up, dial and check your cords.. Yeah those were the times (heavy backpacks!). Then I had to get a job to afford ISDN stuffs + laptops and everything shifted to internet cafes and the 'homeless hacker'/google era. Ill just cut right there, otherwise this will go further than it already has. Anyways, doc inspired me to not 'just' be a hat but to be able to appreciate all the hats. I would have to say, that was a life saving inspiration in a time they were hunting people that owned computers and were armed with curiosity. I will always be thankful. It gave me time to get my real life together, play the systems game again, clean my vest, hide the hat and get a move on professionally. Did what I had to do, built an avatar that the system accepted and I even ended up working for the very people that have oppressed people like us for so long.. Coincidence? I think not. Being human caused me to become a natural hacker, a social engineer extraordinaire. I learned like/feel/need/perceive is a variable depending on where you go. Some places, folks give you their like for nothing at all and other places: I had to work for it. Either way, I had to harness this newly found knowledge and tinker further. Life has big one big puzzle if you ask me and I was destined to find the box cover. Every advantage is great, even those advances that people are no longer capable of thinking of. They are in old sheep mode, guide dog not needed or might heard themselves. It is the direct result of society and perceived humanity attempting to mold each and every one of us they way a consensus perceives it is the best for the individual. I have always protected my true self and merely 'agreed' to the delusional opinion being a necessary evil to the ends of freeing me from their control. Yes, it is sad on all counts. Remember, they only mattered because I needed certain results in order to move forward, they are all just nodes I bnc'd off of. WHen I met doc, the seed of what anonymous is to me was planted. Surely back then he had the right idea. Now that I am back, I am proud to see what has grown out of how he lived his life. All I can say is, its unbelievable how strong his spirit lives among so many worldwide. Its like we are offspring in a way, which is sick because ive probably fucked 3 of my own sisters, lol.. anyways. We all morph and move on eventually. Except us, WE ARE LEGION, NEVER FORGET. -archaic.3rph3v0n.an0n

It's been a year already. I don't know if it's felt longer or shorter than that. Some days the pain is still fresh, but other days I don't think about you at all. It's hard to move on after losing someone that had such a big part of your daily life for so long, but always know that you had a positive impact on me. At times I wish you were still here, but I know life was a struggle for you for a while. I can't imagine that pain. I don't know how you did it at times, you were so strong. You will never be forgotten, nor will what you taught me.

Dear Owen, I prayed when I was a teenager for someone to come and help me change the world. I remember talking to you and asking you to help me with that. If it weren't for you, none of these people would be here. Now of these people would exist for this cause, for this group. I did not have the skillz nor do I have them now but you did. Thank you Owen for answering my call, for listening to my God and helping set this off. You were a good friend. Peace. I hope you are enjoying Heaven just as much as I did. Also, I never liked the term old fag, nor did i like new fag. It sounds weird. even though it's an acronym.

All things, because we are human, eventually lose their full value and effect because we have such short attention spans and things that were the forefront eventually begin to fade into the background and blend in. At that time it is quite necessary for something of precious value to be plucked away... only to gain the attention again, to bring things back to the forefront... to strengthen the cause even more than it ever was. I never knew Owen... I have not yet known any of you... but I have watched... I have heard and I have listened and I will soon don the mask with my brothers and sisters. So, no I do not know you yet but I respect and love you all and I trust when you say how precious Owen IS that you are more than righteous and probably can not, with mere words, express how great he is (not "was") and how important a role he has played in the many lives of those who knew him and also in those who are clueless to the changes he has provoked in this world on their behalf. I just know for a fact that the loss of him physically from this world was for 2 reasons. To make you all stronger... and so he can represent us all in another realm. He is certainly making his connects and building his following there where he is now while watching over us all here at the same time. I am convinced... I need to learn nothing more... Thank you all for what you do. I will be honored to be with you in every way.

Your words of wisdom and your kind heart are on my mind since the day I happened to learn of you and your precious social commitment, from a book. I am sure many will follow in your footsteps to make this world a better place! On this very day you were born and your birth has been a gift to us. My thoughts are with your parents, relatives, friends and beloved ones. RIP

It's always hard to hear that a brother has passed, especially one as well known and inspirational as yourself. May the light never die in this fire. It is often said that when one of us die, two will take their place. For a man like you my friend, it will take more than that, but you know that the battle never ends and you knew that you were a part of something way bigger than yourself. As a collective, we will fill the shoes that you have left behind and eventually accomplish the goals that you share with us to mold the future and create a better world. May you rest in piece my friend and may whatever reality or entity you have found watch over you and protect you. Until we meet again.
