Anonymous is no more a who then it is a what. Anonymous is more of a collective of like minded people collaborating on many different topics many of which do not include hacking. The people who make up this world wide collaboration range from some of the most skilled hackers in the world to the activist on the street. Even though there is no central command structure Anonymous thrives because of the Worlds need to speak out against those who choose to oppress. If you were to try and put a label on this organization one would tend to lean towards the government of the internet , only this government truly is as fair and diverse as its people.
An Anon has many roles in this digital organization besides just DDosing targets on the internet. In fact most of those who associate with Anonymous are not involved in anything illegal at all. Those who choose to fight with Anonymous do so with not only training but with the support of those who fight alongside them. Every operation Anonymous takes up is a new facet of its ever evolving structure and requires teams consisting of bloggers, news writers, intelligence gatherers, activists and of course hackers. These teams are usually people from around the world dedicated to being the infrastructure of Anonymous operations and use the skills they have to let the voice of others be heard. Anonymous is the force it is, not because of the technical skills involved, but because of the people willing to take on causes that the world deems ignorable.
