Barrett Brown - Introduction to Operation Metal Gear
This video, by Barrett Brown, was uploaded to Youtube on Apr 13, 2011.

In the video he explains the aims, activities and origin of Operation Metal Gear.

Here is the description which was provided on Youtube:

Metal Gear is a term we've applied to the combined use of persona management (fake internet people operated en masse by a software-assisted human operator), attribution (identification and surveillance of those who'd prefer to remain anonymous), and advanced data collection and modelling. Our earlier investigation into HBGary, Palantir, and the like shows that such methodology has already been misused at high levels; our intent is to root out any other ongoing or planned misuse by public and private entities and then expose them. Download an IRC client and join us at #opmetalgear or #opmetalgear to assist in this campaign or start your own investigation with the help of the following information:
