Payment Processing, Creativity, and Censorship - #cconcensorship

CatalystCon Ned & Maggie Mayhem Saturday, September 15, 2012 9:00am-10:10am


  1. The digital marketplace has expanded our access to human creativity by erecting new ways to access pictures, words, films, and sounds made by people all over the world. While the Internet created an opportunity for a showcase of the imagination, censorship has also taken on new forms. From battles with PayPal to the kind of content Visa finds unsuitable for public consumption, how do the limits of payment processors impact our creativity and put borders on the human narrative? Ned and Maggie share their story of censorship on the basis of “sacrilege” and how they get around it to continue sharing their story of Mayhem on the world wide web.
