Information Wars: A Window into the Alternative Media Ecosystem
Kate Starbird

Forgive me as I only skimmed one of the links you posted and didn’t read the ICWSM piece at all but I notice that you use the phrase “conspiracy theory” throughout this piece but I don’t recall seeing it defined. Do you have a definition of “conspiracy theory” that you work from?

I ask because it often, though not always of course, seems to be used as a pejorative but actually seems to be shorthand for a person unwilling or uninterested in actually researching particular topics. I’m not suggesting this is what you are doing but it’s difficult to know if it isn’t being defined.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
