An article from the New Yorker this Monday takes a comprehensive look at the September suicide of gay Rutgers student Tyler Clementi. The article further details the ensuing court case against Tyler’s roommate who had Tweeted about using his computer to spy on Tyler while the latter was with a lover in the days before the suicide. Pulling from danah boyd’s work on online privacy and teen bullying, the article considers the social and structural obstacles to both identifying and combating pervasive computer-mediated aggression against queer youth.
